Beyond the Safety Net: Behavioral Health in an Integrated Setting

We’ve sold out the mezzanine for 200+ mental health advocates at OHSU on August 1 to meet and hear from Pamela Martin, new chief at state Addictions and Mental Health. We’ll open the balcony with 100 more seats with 20 days to go, so if you should be seen as one of our type of folk, better sign up now.

As usual it’s free. AND our pals at ACCBO will sign CEU certificates at the event.

We’re honored to have NARA NW All Nations Drum perform prior to Pam’s talk.

Pam’s talk is titled – Beyond the Safety Net: Behavioral Health in an Integrated Setting

Pam Martin, Ph.D., ABPP, joined the Oregon Health Authority in 2013. As a licensed clinical psychologist for more than 30 years, she has worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings with children, youth, families and adults. Her experience includes serving as the Director of the Behavioral Health Services Division for the New Mexico Department of Health.

Most recently Dr. Martin worked for Lovelace Health Plan, integrating behavioral and physical health services. In this capacity, she developed quality initiatives and partnered with community providers, advocates, consumers and other stakeholders to identify gaps in mental health and substance abuse systems and enhance the system of care.

She also worked with the University of New Mexico Project ECHO, which received a Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation grant to design statewide “hot spots” to provide team-based care for people with high needs. She holds degrees from the University of California, Berkeley and Rutgers, a doctorate in clinical psychology from the State University of New York and is a diplomate in cognitive and behavioral psychology, American Board of Professional Psychology.
