ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Leadership Institute is a leadership development program designed to help good behavioral health leaders become great leaders in the field of public behavioral health care. Over the past 16 years, the Institute has trained close to 500 California leaders. Faculty staff includes national and local experts from a range of leadership disciplines. All have been selected for their knowledge of, and experience in, multiple aspects of leadership, both within and outside of public behavioral health systems. Faculty selection is informed by rigorous evaluations, completed by staff and participants, that rate presenter on content relevance, depth of knowledge, and learning experience.
Through a contract with the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission, the California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS) is leading a statewide project, directed by legislation, to engage counties, providers, and stakeholders in an effort to establish consensus, and train to, California statewide clinical assessment guidelines for involuntary detainment (in various settings) that are person-centered, family driven/inclusive, culturally responsive and recovery oriented to improve the consumer experience.
CIBHS provides Crisis Intervention Training. Crisis Intervention Team CIT programs throughout the United States and in other nations worldwide promote and support collaborative efforts to create and sustain more effective interactions among law enforcement, mental health care providers, individuals with mental illness, their families and communities and also to reduce the stigma of mental illness.
