Virtual Event: Multisector Task-Sharing to Improve Mental Health in Harlem, NY

Hosted by: Systems for Action
Time: Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. ET
Location: Virtual

This webinar introduces a new study evaluating the effectiveness of a multisector task-sharing collaborative in addressing the inter-related problems of mental health disorders, poverty, and housing instability among racial and ethnic minority communities residing in Harlem, New York. The collaborative trains the staff at low-income housing agencies and primary care practices to engage in mental health task-sharing, whereby staff deliver basic mental health support services such as screening, psychoeducation, peer support, and referral to mental health specialists.

Virtual Event: Social Bonds as a Pooled Financing Mechanism to Address Social Drivers of Health Equity

Hosted by: Systems for Action
Time: Wednesday, March 2, 2022 at 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. ET
Location: Virtual

This webinar introduces a new study investigating whether a novel type of social bond can pool resources across multiple competing health plans and create stable, long-term financing for interventions that address social determinants of health. The bond's design would allow multiple health plans participating in Minnesota’s Medicaid program to invest collectively in a fund that finances community-based interventions targeting social issues such as food insecurity, housing instability, transportation, and structural racism.

Virtual Event: Integrating Health and Social Services through a Novel Independent Practice Association

Hosted by: Systems for Action
Time: Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.
Location: Virtual

This webinar introduces a new study investigating the impact of a novel independent practice association (IPA) formed among community-based social service organizations (CBOs) to address social determinants of health among residents of upstate New York. The Healthy Alliance IPA allows diverse CBOs offering services for housing, transportation, food, and other social needs to join together in a shared-governance association that facilitates referrals, care coordination, and performance-based contracting with health plans and medical providers.
