As we approach the 10-year anniversary of the passage of landmark federal legislation, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, mental health care delivery and outcomes still significantly lag physical health. New, collective resolve is needed to accelerate performance improvement in integrated mental health care.

The Action Group will be hosting a Community Dialogue for all community stakeholders, including employers, health plans, providers, quality improvement organizations, nonprofits, legislators and staff, and other interested parties to examine the current state of mental health care in Minnesota and articulate a path forward for individual and collective action.

The agenda for this unique and exciting event has just been updated, featuring esteemed speakers and panelists from employers, care systems, health plans, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). Learn more here.

WHEN: October 30, 2018, 8 a.m.-10:30 a.m. (breakfast and networking begin at 8; event begins at 8:30)

WHERE: Science Museum of Minnesota (Attendees receive free museum admission, including the acclaimed exhibit, Mental Health: Mind Matters)
