Engagement: Cohort 2019
Challenge: Build a comprehensive plan for staff and support the consolidation of three existing programs into CHANT (Community Health Access and Navigation in Tennessee), which includes the Title V CYSHCN program and two Medicaid programs. The team has begun training and rolling out CHANT, and wants to work further on standardizing services and the curriculum for the program, as well as ensuring all staff in the new program have the skills and knowledge they need to carry out the program.
Engagement: Cohort 2016
Challenge: Promote the integration of behavioral health into primary care for children, youth, adolescents, and young adults (ages 0-21) by developing a Toolkit with the Department of Education and increasing visibility of the issue through an expanded and strengthened partnership base.
Project Results: The team secured funding to continue this work from a SAMHSA SOC Expansion Grant and shared their work to integrate stakeholder feedback at a TennCare Summit and at a Community Café with the state Commission on Children and Youth.
