County Behavioral Health Fiscal Leadership Institute Fall 2018
HELD: Wednesday, November 28, 2018Thursday, November 29, 2018
The purpose of the Fiscal Leadership Institute (FLI) was to
provide in-depth practical training for county behavioral health
finance managers and staff statewide that provided current and
future leaders with the tools to effectively and efficiently
utilize the limited resources available in California to finance
high-quality county mental health service delivery systems. This
institute focused on the specialized fiscal needs of counties and
also incorporated current and emerging federal and state fiscal
policy topics related to MHSA.
Information on how to complete and file the Annual Mental
Health Cost Report and Annual Revenue and Expenditure Report
effectively and on time.
The financial aspects of current and emerging federal and
state fiscal policy topics.
Descriptions of the various funding streams and how they can
work together to reduce disparities in access to community mental
health and integrated care services.
The impact of the many funding streams on the delivery of
mental health and dual diagnosis services in small counties.
This two-day, biannual institute provided county behavioral
health fiscal leaders with critical information and tools to stay
up-to-date on today’s rapid changes in healthcare. Participants
heard from experts on behavioral healthcare finance and policy.
This event was only open to county behavioral health staff. We
encouraged each county to identify the appropriate fiscal staff
and to attend as a team. Space was limited, so we encouraged
counties to register early.
