In recent years, changes in public policy and in living options have resulted in more residents with mental and/or behavioral health needs living in long-term care facilities. Long-term care facilities often lack the training and access to the support necessary to provide individualized care for residents with these needs. Join us to hear about a new free resource for nursing facilities, the Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health in Nursing Facilities (COE-NF). The COE-NF was established in September 2022 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in collaboration with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). COE-NF leadership will share what they do, who they help, program goals, and how to connect the nursing facilities you visit with their resources.
