Driven by a need to provide comprehensive services to our communities’ most disenfranchised individuals who often struggle with myriad health related and accompanying psychosocial needs, practitioners are finding difficulty in addressing the multifaceted health maintenance of these increasingly vulnerable populations. In this presentation, I will demonstrate that our current mechanism for treating clients of color is steeped in silo’d and convoluted systems that undermine the ability to holistically serve individuals with complex care issues. Further, we will discuss the importance of dismantling many of our existing and occasionally antiquated health configurations and rebuilding them as Integrated Care systems. With mindful attention to the paradigm shift integrating care practices create, we will explore its positive impact on client access and outcomes as well as processes required to transform existing protocols into those cultivated for the unique and wide ranging needs of marginalized clients.

Dr. Graham-Williams is a nationally and internationally experienced Behavioral Health practitioner and executive with a proven history of conceiving, developing, and implementing policy-based, programming seeking to eliminate barriers and increase access to Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder based services for marginalized and disenfranchised populations.
