Since November 2018, dozens of representatives from Washtenaw-area organizations--including one-dozen staff members from Washtenaw County Community Mental Health--have been participating in a substance use disorder system transformation process hosted by the Washtenaw Health Initiative. The goal? To dramatically improve the county’s SUD prevention and treatment system by identifying system barriers and weaknesses and then collectively working to overcome them.
Six full-day convenings were held over a six-month period, and at the final transformation convening, which took place at Dawn Farm in Ypsilanti this May, seven cross-agency teams agreed to participate in a 100-day challenge to kick off the work and build momentum. Each team developed an agreed-upon series of action steps that members would take over the summer to begin the work. The groups will reconvene this fall to share progress.
