Strategies for Success in Integrating HIV Care into Behavioral Health

September 14, 2016

2:00pm- 3:30pm EDT

People who experience mental health challenges or addictions are at significantly increase risk for contracting HIV, and people with HIV are more likely to develop a mental illness or addiction. That’s why behavioral health providers are in a key position to curb the spread of HIV and help people with HIV gain access to life-saving treatment. Join this webinar to learn how behavioral health providers and health systems are effectively addressing HIV, substance use treatment and primary care together. Presenters from SAMHSA-funded providers will share their best practices and how they overcame real-world barriers while integrating behavioral health treatment and HIV care. 

After this webinar, participants will:
  • Concrete examples of agencies integrating HIV and behavioral health care.
  • Effective steps to success for any organization working to integrate HIV, substance use and primary care.
  • Relevant resources and tools supporting implementation of HIV care in behavioral health.
Presenters:
  • Kelly Wagner, Mayatech Corporation

  • Nicole White, RN, MS, Manager of Nursing, Brandywine Counseling Center
