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.
