The Indiana Council is pleased to offer several topical sessions for the upcoming 2020 Winter Quarterly Meeting designed to advance your knowledge of important federal and state behavioral policy initiatives.  We begin our morning with the national leader for behavioral health policy, Chuck Ingoglia, President & CEO of the National Council for Behavioral Health (National Council).  The Indiana Council is honored to host Chuck, in his first visit to Indiana since assuming the role as President of the National Council.   Chuck will provide important updates on the status of Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC), federal legislation, Medicaid policy, interacting with Managed Care Entities (MCEs), and his vision for the National Council moving forward.  During the luncheon, please join us as we honor our “Outstanding Legislator of the Year”.  This is the annual award for the Indiana legislator who has dedicated themselves to advancing community mental health in Indiana and the consumers we serve. The afternoon sessions will be focused on important collaboration with the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) and the Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA) related to school-based behavioral health services, including a presentation on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL).  SEL has become an important initiative in school-based setting to develop self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are critical for school, work, and life success.  As a result, it becomes important for community mental health leadership fully understand SEL and the increasing importance of this approach to learning in a school-based setting.  Behavioral health professionals are increasingly becoming engaged in SEL related services and referrals, so it becomes important CMHCs appreciate this important approach to improved consumer health outcomes.
