Supporting the Journey: Transforming Pennsylvania’s Behavioral Health System

“The 2003 report from the President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health, Achieving the Promise: Transforming Mental Health Care in America,challenges states to “fundamentally transform” how mental health care is delivered and to work toward a recovery-oriented system. Pennsylvania’s Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) embraced the challenge and is guided by the OMHSAS Advisory Committee as well as a broad range of stakeholders who create accountability for the system transformation.”

Gender and Mental Health

“Socially constructed differences between women and men in roles and responsibilities, status and power, interact with biological differences between the sexes to contribute to differences in the nature of mental health problems suffered, health seeking behaviour of those affected and responses of the health sector and society as a whole. More is known about differences between males and females in some mental health problems such as depression and schizophrenia than others; about adult men and women than about adolescents and children; and about the situation in industrialized countries than in the developing world.” World Health Organization, June 2002.

 

Prevention

In state fiscal year 2010, the Nevada Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency (SAPTA) funded 11 community-based coalitions serving all 17 Nevada counties. Coalitions use the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) Five Step Model to create Comprehensive Community Prevention Plans. The SPF was created by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and is built on science-theory, evidence-based practices, and the knowledge that effective prevention programs must engage individuals, families, and entire communities. The process involves building infrastructure and mobilization within a geographic area.

In state fiscal year 2010, the coalitions managed 90 sub-recipients who served 28,622 participants (22,727 youth; 5,895 adults), with funds from various grants. Additionally, the SAPTA funded providers disseminated approximately 459,940 pieces of literature SAPTA also funds two administrative programs, the Nevada Prevention Resource Center and Crisis Call Center, and the Statewide Coalition Partnership.
