ROSC Webinar Series: Empowering Communities to Address America's Mental Health and Substance Use Needs, Session 1

This series consists of three webinars where attendees will learn from existing programs how a joint community/provider-led Recovery-Oriented System of Care (ROSC) can empower and positively impact America's growing mental health and substance use challenges.

 

Session 1: June 6, 2024

12:00 PM–2:00 PM CT/ 1:00 PM–3:00 PM ET

Speakers will begin by reviewing core definitions, key principles and "planks" for success of a ROSC as an "organizing construct" to all community care, health and wellness. Specific lived experience examples will be presented based on national examples and, in particular, the implementation of a recovery focused care system in Hancock County, Ohio, as highlighted in SAMHSA's recent TIP 65.

Central in this webinar will be how to attain and sustain community involvement and lessons learned while building, maintaining and evaluating this "community up" model of care. Ample time for Q/A and consultation will be available in all webinars.

 

Intended Audience:

State and County governmental organizing and policy leaders; providers, those in recovery, families and general community.

 

CERTIFICATES:

Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the event or training.

Session 2: July 11, 2024

12:00 PM–2:00 PM CT/ 1:00 PM–3:00 PM ET

Finding the workforce to address the needs of the community and build a locally defined ROSC is critical to its success. As a ROSC, new opportunities for an expanded workforce emerge. This webinar will tie this critical element of creating a workforce based on the actual community needs to a regionally assessed and defined system of care. The presenters will share ways of finding professional/peer workers for all segments and levels of the continuum of care, education-informed prevention-intervention-treatment-recovery, methods to locate community resources to develop and retain their ROSC workforce, and some of the lessons learned in the process of building an integrated and effective coalition.

 

Session 3: August 15, 2024

12:00 PM–2:00 PM CT/ 1:00 PM–3:00 PM ET

Within a ROSC, process is as important as outcome. Sustaining a community/provider ROSC will depend on community ownership of the challenges they may face when maintaining a balanced approach to the relevant processes and outcomes. In this third and final webinar of the ROSC series, the presenters will review those ways to keep the community invested in its ROSC and the outcomes of a ROSC in Hancock County and elsewhere. They will also discuss specific recovery programs for high-risk populations (i.e. veterans, harm reduction, pregnant women/infants, overdose prevention, those in recovery, youth).
