Balancing Disruption and Collaboration: Defining the Future of Mental Health

Balancing Disruption and Collaboration: Defining the Future of Mental Health

Dr. Ron Manderscheid, M.D., CEO & President, National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Directors and the National Association for Rural Mental Health
Tom Herzog,Chief Operating Officer, Netsmart

Some things — just a few — changed in 2020. Are those changes here to stay, or are we only having a moment?

What does the behavioral health landscape look like post-COVID?

On this episode of Netsmart CareThreads, we talked about the future of behavioral healthcare post-COVID with Dr. Ron Manderscheid, CEO & President of the National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Directors and the National Association for Rural Mental Health, and an adjunct professor in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Here's what we discussed with Ron:

  • “Modernizing” virtual care software to engage all providers to create a more integrated care environment
  • Closing the chasm between community-based and institutional care settings to create a “center” while also respecting the recovery movement
  • Embracing consensus-built (not top-down) data systems
  • Artificial intelligence systems that support the provider...help them decide more quickly on appropriate meds or interventions
  • Better use of good apps that are evidence-based
  • We have to change behavioral health training practices
  • The ultimate goal is recovery and the well-being of the persons we serve

This discussion with Dr. Ron Manderscheid was taken from our show Netsmart CareThreads.
