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.
