Mental Health America (MHA) has partnered with the Digital Therapeutics Alliance (DTA) for a Policy Institute to explore what the emergence of digital therapeutics means for mental health and substance use policy. While we will not attribute anything said in the Policy Institute to any of the attendees, we will use the discussion to inform a policy brief that will help guide the field as it navigates technology, policy, and behavioral health.

Technology has been disrupting everything from how we travel to how we buy groceries, but mental health and substance use treatment has largely remained the same. In some cases this may be for the best - disruption without evidence might not help people, and it may even hurt them. In the past few years, however, several technologies have undergone rigorous evaluations and demonstrated effectiveness in treating mental health and substance use conditions, and more and more are even receiving approval by the FDA. While there are many different kinds of digital health innovations, technologies that undergo these kind of rigorous reviews are referred to as "digital therapeutics."

To date digital therapeutics have received little policy consideration, as most digital health policy tackled critical issues in telehealth and health IT. For those who advocate for advancing behavioral health care and lowering consumer costs, what do digital therapeutics mean for policy? In a payment system designed for providers, drugs, and devices, how do digital therapeutics fit in and how can policy help build a supportive clinical context for delivering effective digital therapeutics to those who would most benefit?

Each year, MHA's Annual Conference brings together affiliates, consumers, providers, family members and advocates from across the country to talk about important and emerging mental health issues. This year's theme, Dueling Diagnoses: Mental Health and Chronic Conditions in Children and Adults will explore the dynamic that exists between persistent conditions, including those that are broader in natures, and the intersection of these conditions with mental health. There will be a Pre-Con Day for MHA Affiliates only on June 12, see below for registration access information.

MHA will host keynote speakers and panelists, breakout speakers, experts in their fields, that will share their keen insights. The event will give policy makers and advocates alike, the chance to learn, expand personal development, and connect with like-minded passionate individuals.

The Focus: MHA's content will be developed around understanding understanding underlying factors that lead to both physical and mental health concerns in children and adults;

Recognizing and distinguishing the symptoms and characteristics of the mental health conditions that may be present in people with physical, intellectual, and cognitive conditions and limitation; and

Developing and identifying strategies that can be used by individuals, advocates, and providers across conditions to work on behalf of the whole person and move everyone along pathways to recovery, as we define those.

We are going to talk both about mental health and traditional chronic conditions and also co-occurring issues that are broader in nature such as a poverty, trauma and racism.

It’s been six remarkable years since we started on our journey to advance primary care transformation in Texas! We are pleased with the road traveled but know there is much more to do! As a result, we are expanding the focus of our collaboration to address this issue from a systems perspective: Texas Primary Care Consortium! These include but are not limited to identifying and addressing research gaps, building capacity, and informing policy efforts!
 
With a theme of “Advancing Primary Care Transformation,” this year’s Summit will be June 20-21, 2019 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel.
 
We are planning a great agenda that will include presentations on the current state of the health home and primary care; using data to achieve results; how to succeed in value-based payment models and updates on ACOs and other models of primary care nationally and in Texas. We are expanding the opportunities for attendees to share their successes and challenges in practice transformation with peers.
 
We heard your feedback loud and clear: more emphasis on the “how” of practice transformation. The Planning Committee is already hard at work on the agenda.

Government Health Care Congress assembles health plans, providers, states, and community organizations to develop strategies that promote growth, value, and quality care in government-sponsored health care programs.
