The Children’s Summit: The Future of School-Based Health Services

Executive Summit

Provider organizations serving children with complex support needs and youth in underserved communities are seeking to develop innovative programs and models of care that integrate behavioral health support services with educational needs. However, these young people often end up in a no-win situation in which either treatment or education is put first to the detriment of the other. With the current focus on social determinants of health, how are provider organizations keeping pace with the changing market to ensure the focus on education and the focus on treatment sit side-by-side? Join us for discussions about the opportunities and ongoing challenges facing the children’s services market in this summit. Executives will discuss innovations in school-based service delivery, the intersection between education and health care funding, and evolving payment models that could systemically address these challenges in the future.
