OVERVIEW

Regional Meetings for Integrated SAMI Treatment are peer-networking opportunities that occur in five different regions of Ohio (get map). The meetings are designed to encourage professionals from multiple disciplines, service settings, and systems of care to share challenges, solutions, and lessons learned while implementing evidence-based practices, best practices, and other service strategies for people with mental illness or co-occurring substance abuse and mental illness (SAMI).

Regional meetings are frequently attended by individuals from organizations that have different levels of experience with implementation. Therefore, the meetings help maximize efficiencies and outcomes, because participants help each other avoid mistakes that have already been made and replicate strategies that are getting results. 

Sponsored By

These events are sponsored by the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at Case Western Reserve University—and its Ohio Substance Abuse and Mental Illness Coordinating Center of Excellence (Ohio SAMI CCOE). They are hosted by partnering organizations in the community.
