Project Description Narrative:


Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative Phase I

Upstream Improvement: Enhancing behavioral health in northern Wisconsin is a project within AHW's Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative, an eight-year, $20 million initiative bringing together 10 community coalitions from across Wisconsin to address pressing mental health needs within their communities. A three-phase initiative, phase one served as a funded learning and planning phase, supporting community coalitions in developing a critical project focus and implementation plan. Through this project, partners sought to develop an implementation plan to support the creation of a system that both addresses the social determinants of behavioral health and improves the availability, accessibility and acceptability of regional services.

Outcomes & Lessons Learned:


• Completed the Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative Phase I learning community and planning phase

• Successfully developed project focus and implementation plan, receiving funding award for Phase II five-year project implementation period
