``Every new idea can make a difference.``
Opportunities to Innovate Behavioral Health
BeHealth™ includes in-person gatherings of stakeholders and ongoing communication among stakeholders throughout the process. The Innovation component of MHSA tests new approaches to mental health assessment and intervention.
BeHealth.Today is a complete process, from education to workshops to presenting a proposal for consideration by County and State funding sources.
- A Learning Event to understand the Process
- A Workshop to Generate New Ideas
- A Plan to Develop a Proposal
- A Presentation to Potential Funders
Developed by SDSU Social Policy Institute and The Idea Guy®, BeHealth.Today™ provides the opportunity for people with lived experience, family members and community groups to generate new approaches to uses of technology in behavioral health.
In The End
BeHealth™ is a proven process to create meaningful engagement with stakeholders in the community and yields concepts, plans and prototypes for Innovation proposals, which will be subject to local and state approval prior to implementation. Proposal outlines will conform with local County Health & Human Services Agencies, Behavioral Health Services (BHS) guidelines and MHSA regulations for Innovation programs, as described in background Information.
