Mental Health America is hosting a free webinar, Funding Primary Prevention: Overcoming Challenges with Innovative Financing Mechanisms, on Sept. 8, 2 p.m.-3:30 p.m. (EDT). Identifying sustainable financing for primary prevention is a challenge throughout human service sectors. Although many sectors - mental health and substance abuse, general health, education, public health, child welfare, juvenile justice - are concerned with individual and community well-being; financing, policy and programmatic divisions make collaboration between sectors difficult. In an attempt to better understand the financing landscape and promote understanding between human service fields, this webinar will review the challenges of our current system, explore major existing funding mechanisms, and share emerging and innovative public and private financing strategies that can be utilized for primary prevention interventions. New opportunities from the Affordable Care Act and interest from private in vestors will also be highlighted.
