RCPA’s Behavioral Health Division committees and work groups are the foundation of our legislative and advocacy efforts on behalf of members. Member involvement in these groups provides unique perspectives on operational and service-level experiences that shape our positions and strategies.
There are larger bi-monthly Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and Adult and Children’s Mental Health Division meetings that include stakeholder updates and discussions. DDAP, OMHSAS, OCYF, and guest speakers from across the continuum of human services typically participate in these meetings. Additionally, we have several active specific work groups that include:
|SUD Committees||Adult MH Committee|
|Opioid Treatment Programs||Adult Mental Health Steering Committee|
|Centers of Excellence||988/Crisis Services|
|SUD Regulatory Reform||ACT Program|
|SUD Legislative||Regulatory Reform|
|Children’s MH Committees||Combined SUD/MH Committees|
|Children’s Steering Committee||Telehealth|
|IBHS Work Group||Criminal Justice|
|Children’s Residential Services||Value-Based Purchasing|
|School-Based Behavioral Health||ICWC/CCBHC|
|Family-Based Services Ad Hoc Group|
Several of the groups are open only to provider members, while others include any interested member. Participation in the groups is open to individuals that you feel best fit the needs of your organization. If you would like to participate in any of the committees or work groups, please contact your Behavioral Health Division Directors Jim Sharp or Jason Snyder. We look forward to collaborating with you in the future.
