June 19 Webinar: Prevention, Early ID of MH/SU Conditions in Children

CMCS Webinar: Prevention and Early Identification of Mental Health and Substance Use Conditions in Children

 

Join us for a webinar to discuss the CMCS Informational Bulletin on Prevention and Early Identification of Mental Health and Substance Use Conditions in Children, which was released on March 27, 2013. 

This CMCS Informational Bulletin was issued to help inform states about resources available to help them meet the needs of children under EPSDT, specifically with respect to mental health and substance use disorder services. 

The webinar will feature speakers from several federal agencies including CMS, ACF/ACYF, and SAMHSA, discussing the Information Bulletin as well as the collaborative efforts underway between the agencies. 

Dr. Jane Meschan Foy from the American Academy of Pediatrics will provide information on the toolkit AAP has developed for providers to improve identification of mental illness and enhance treatment in primary care.  In addition, Medicaid staff from Colorado will speak about the work they have been doing to extend depression and substance use screening, diagnosis and treatment to children and adolescents
