  • Dr. Ijeoma Achara, one of the leading authorities on behavioral health systems transformation presented at this meeting. Dr. Achara led the transformation of Philadelphia’s behavioral health system into a recovery oriented system of care. She has worked extensively with William White and Thomas Kirk in implementing the change process in Connecticut and Philadelphia. Dr. Achara was instrumental in identifying and modifying policies and practices that were inconsistent with a recovery orientation and developed new mental health and addictions programs and initiatives. 

    Dr. Achara discussed in-depth the urgency and importance for aligning treatment, mental health, public health and recovery support service organizations for ensuring a holistic systems approach for assisting individuals in recovery.  Attendees also received information regarding the directions states are following in preparation for Health Care Reform.  Participants attending in Austin and via video conferencing engaged in a short guided group exercise to determine their communities’ strengths and weaknesses that helped to identify additional stakeholders and organizations needed in transforming the system of care.  Dr. Achara also praised Texas for being proactive and a leader in initiating systems changes to address future changes in health care.
