Maine Health Reform Learning Collaborative Project (2012)

As part of an effort to build state coalitions and educate mental health and substance use stakeholders on health reform implementation, SAMHSA invited state mental health and substance use consumer and peer organizations, recovery community organizations, family member organizations, provider organizations, and other behavioral health stakeholder organizations to participate in CCSME’s Health Reform Learning Collaborative project.

CCSME participated in the coalition together with Maine Parent Federation, Inc., Amistad, Inc., Advocacy Initiative Network of Maine, NAMI Maine, Maine Mental Health Connections, Dirigo Counseling Clinic, LLC., Counseling Services, Inc, Preble Street, Youth MOVE Maine, and Milestone Foundation, Inc..

Resources developed and shared through eight coalitions nationwide were made available to other stakeholder groups and behavioral health coalitions across the country.
