Bridging Local Systems: Strategies for Behavioral Health and Social Services Collaboration

The Bridging Local Systems project is a collaborative effort between the NCIOM and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The primary goal of the project is to facilitate Regional Leadership Summits to engage county Division of Social Services (DSS) offices and Local Management Entities/Managed Care Organizations (LME/MCOs) in a dialogue exploring strengths, challenges, and strategies for improving the service interface related to children and youth served by the foster care program and older adults with disabilities. A Statewide Leadership Steering Committee will also be convened to consider shared lessons and recommendations for statewide action that arise from the regional summits.
