About the GRAND ROUNDS:  In this 60-minute, 1-credit CEU virtual event, participants will learn about gains being made through medical and technological advances and the ways our mental health care system can improve the delivery of care. Expert perspectives will focus on where we have advanced and fallen short when it comes to access, parity, outcomes, partnerships, and innovation. Panelists will discuss several topics, including the increase in suicide rates; access; outcomes; the impact of the pandemic on mental health; and the provider, payor, government, and patient partnership. Participants will discuss the challenges facing the mental health care system but also how the system can work together to reinvent itself. The panelists will lend their expertise and opinion on access to quality behavioral health care—where the industry has advanced and where it has fallen short. Attendees walk away knowing the challenges and how we can overcome them, and how government, value-based care, providers, payers, and technology all fit together to create a partnership that will help those in need live healthier lives.
