Project Term: 12 months; Ended 2017
Grant Amount: $20,000
Missoula County successfully coordinated two stakeholder meetings with the National Council of Behavioral Health’s facilitator which resulted in a shared vision for moving forward and achievable action items. Through these two primary meetings, monthly phone calls, and occasional follow-up meetings, Missoula was able to increase communication among providers and secure commitment for expanding integrated care. Community partners successfully came together to celebrate successes, identify gaps, and create action items for the future. Through these meetings, communication and understanding of other agency roles have increased, resulting in a more unified approach to integrated care across Missoula County. At the conclusion of this project, Missoula committed to creating a community of wellness group to continue this work and to provide a platform for future communication and collaboration.
