Our 2015 Annual Meeting took place on November 17 at the USM Wishcamper Center in Portland. The day began with a show of appreciation to our member organizations through plaques presented by CCSME Board President Simonne Maline:
Following the awards national speaker Ron Manderscheid, Ph.D., Executive Director of the National Association of County Behavioral Health & Developmental Disability Directors and Adjunct Professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, gave the keynote presentation, “A Changing Landscape: How National Trends in Behavioral Health Affect Your Practice.”
The afternoon included workshops — led by CCSME board members — on recovery-oriented systems of care, co-occurring practice in behavioral health homes, medication-assisted treatment and recovery, and mental illness at the pretrial stage. Dr. Manderscheid joined each workshop in turn to lend a national perspective to the discussions.
Materials and resources from the keynote and breakout sessions are available on our website.
