Overview

Children and Youth Specialty Mental Health Services Regional Provider and County Convenings for STRTPs

The California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS) in coordination with the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has determined that it is best to postpone the California Regional Convenings on March 19, 2020 in Sacramento, CA, and on April 30, 2020 in Anaheim, CA. This decision is based on health advisories and consistent with Governor Gavin Newsom’s announcement on March 12, 2020, that non-essential gatherings of more than 250 people be postponed or canceled in order to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19. We apologize for any inconvenience this postponement has created.

CIBHS Staff is continuing to work in coordination with DHCS Staff to determine the best way to bring you the information that was to be provided at these Regional Convenings. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we work toward an alternative method for delivering the information in a quality and timely manner.

Please feel free to contact me, Rick DeGette, rdegette@cibhs.org with your questions or concerns about this postponement.
