Stan Gilbert, Klamath Basin Behavioral Health (KBBH) Executive Director, discusses how collaboration with community stakeholders has resulted in the following innovations:
- Behavioral Health embedded in the Community Corrections office, resulting in same day warm handoffs to behavioral health staff upon first check in upon release from prison/jail.
- KBBH’s certification as a yoga studio, so therapists can be certified in yoga for bodywork for trauma work.
- KBBH’s certification as a Certified Community Behavioral Health Center (CCBHC), which has been a gamechanger for funding, and thus has fueled more innovations.
- Klamath County stakeholders’ commitment to braided funding to support the upcoming sobering center.
