Webinar: State Strategies to Meet the Needs of Children and Families Affected by Opioids

In partnership with the Alliance for Early Success, NASHP is hosting a webinar, State Strategies to Meet the Needs of Young Children and Families Affected by the Opioid Crisis, from 2 to 3 p.m. (EST), Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, to highlight New Hampshire’s coordinated approach to meet the needs of young children affected by opioid use disorder.

States increasingly want to address the impact of the opioid epidemic on children and families, as explored in the US Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s recent service and delivery model — Integrated Care for Kids.

The speakers from New Hampshire will review their state’s initiatives and share lessons learned from working across systems to support young children and families impacted by the opioid epidemic. They will also describe how they implemented specific care models, leveraged multiple funding streams, and partnered with families. Speakers include:

  • Geraldo Pilarski, Bureau of Community, Family, and Program Support Administrator, New Hampshire Division for Children, Youth and Families
  • Erica Ungarelli, Bureau for Children’s Behavioral Health Director, New Hampshire Division for Behavioral Health
