RCPA will begin hosting regular meetings with Pennsylvania Integrated Care and Wellness Centers (ICWC) and Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC). The first meeting is scheduled to be held on Thursday, March 31, 2022, from 1:30 pm–3:00 pm. This meeting is open to RCPA members and non-members.
The goal of the meetings is to gather together those who are currently acting as an ICWC or CCBHC as well as RCPA members and non-members who are interested in applying for a SAMHSA CCBHC Demonstration grant. The meeting format and frequency will be discussed at the first meeting.
President Biden outlined in his press release before the State of the Union address a federal strategy to address the mental health crisis and expansion of CCBHCs. This meeting is an opportunity to share challenges and successes as ICWCs and CCBHCs.
