Webinar: Behavioral Health Services in the Affordable Care Act
Wednesday, May 18, 2011 | 3 p.m. Eastern Time
What does health reform mean for people in recovery from addiction, consumers of mental health services, and their families? The National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery, Faces & Voices of Recovery, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness jointly present a series of five webinars sponsored by SAMHSA to provide information on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its implementation in the states to state-based advocates from the mental health and addiction disorders consumer, recovery, and family communities.
Register now for the first webinar, an overview of ACA and how it helps people with mental health and addiction disorders and their families. The webinar will give advocates the tools they need to begin interacting effectively with state legislators, administrators, and others charged with development of mechanisms and regulations for implementation of ACA. http://bit.ly/mmUqoq [SAMHSA http://content.govdelivery.com/bulletins/gd/USSAMHSA-718a8]
