NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF STATE MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAM DIRECTORS

NASMHPD Prevention Center's webinar Legislative Strategies to Foster the Use of Evidence-Based Prevention Practices: Examples from Washington State

The 2012 Washington State Legislature passed E2SHB 2536 with the intention that “prevention and intervention services delivered to children and juveniles in the areas of mental health, child welfare, and juvenile justice be primarily evidence-based and research-based, and it is anticipated that such services will be provided in a manner that is culturally competent.”   This webinar provides information on the bill, as well as the accompanying resources and supports that were put in place to facilitate the successful implementation of its requirements.

Presenter:

  • Eric Trupin, Ph.D., Professor and Vice Chair, University of Washington School of Medicine, Division of Public Behavioral Health and Justice Policy Evidence Based Practice Institute

Date of webinar: September 9, 2013
