Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Rhode Island Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals (BHDDH) is soliciting responses from qualified entities to explore opportunities to redesign the delivery of the work of the substance abuse prevention task forces as defined by Rhode Island Substance Abuse Prevention Act, chapter 16-21.2-2, into Prevention Councils with a redesigned prevention delivery system, for which we are soliciting input. The Department seeks to implement its vision to employ a population health model throughout the Division of Behavioral Healthcare and encourage partnerships among the mental health, substance treatment and prevention fields. The vision for the Prevention Councils is that they act as a catalyst and mobilize key community partners (community mental health centers, community health centers, schools, law enforcement, youth serving organizations, parents, youth, etc.) to deliver a life span approach across the continuum that focuses on priority populations and activities including but not limited to substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion.. A key component will include the development of a timeline that moves from funding programs to funding planning, coordination and implementation. This change which has been precipitated by dramatic shifts in both level and source of funding for community level prevention planning will allow for the development of community based programs that are sustainable. Our goal is to move the locus of responsibility from the current underfunded system to more sustainable and appropriate funding stream.
