Columbia: Mental Health Reform in Israel
October 10 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
In July 2015, a major mental health reform in Israel went into effect, transferring responsibility for hospital and ambulatory mental health services from government to the health maintenance organizations (HMO) and integrating mental health services into the general health care system.
Columbia University School of Social Work welcomes Professor Uri Aviram will discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with implementation of this reform, and comment on lessons other jurisdictions interested in reforming their mental health service system could learn from the Israeli experience. The effect of timing and role of entrepreneurs in achieving social policy reforms will also be discussed.
