AUNE’s Center for Behavioral Health Innovation (BHI) has been retained by the NH Department of Health and Human Services to prepare the next 10-year plan for addressing the behavioral health needs of NH’s citizens. Led by Clinical Psychology faculty Jim Fauth (Director) and George Tremblay (Co-Director), BHI will review relevant data, meet with stakeholders around the State, facilitate workgroups to devise recommendations, and prepare a report designed to guide DHHS strategy for the coming decade. To enhance the utility of the report for decision makers, BHI is recruiting a health economist to estimate financial implications of various plan elements, and propose potential payment models. Finally, the report will anticipate implementation challenges and strategies to address them.
