American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP)
Website: www.afsp.org

Mission
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leader in the fight against suicide. To fully achieve its mission, AFSP engages in the following Five Core Strategies:

  • Fund scientific research
  • Offer educational programs for professionals
  • Educate the public about mood disorders and suicide prevention
  • Promote policies and legislation that impact suicide and prevention
  • Provide programs and resources for survivors of suicide loss and people at risk, and involve them in the work of the Foundation

History
In 1987, a small group of caring individuals had a vision: establish a private source of support for suicide research and education, and essential suicide prevention efforts could be sustained into the future. These founding families—each of whom had lost someone to suicide—joined with scientists to create what today is the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
Before AFSP, there was no national-scope, not-for-profit organization dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy. Since its founding in 1987, AFSP has:

  • Mobilized and connected tens of thousands of people who have lost a family member, loved one, or friend to suicide;
  • Reached thousands of individuals who are at risk for suicide, as well as those who love and care for them;
  • Attracted the participation of members of the scientific and clinical communities, who conduct groundbreaking research on suicide and its prevention with support from AFSP;
  • Established more than 50 local chapters in 35 states, with more in the process of forming;
  • Educated hundreds of local communities about suicide and how to prevent it;
  • Created a public policy and lobbying arm by merging successfully with an existing national policy organization, thus enabling AFSP to press for legislation and policies at the federal, state and local levels that advance the goal of preventing suicide;
  • Substantially increased our funding from individual donors, including the thousands of highly motivated individuals who participate in our Out of the Darkness Walks;
  • Educated reporters and the media about how to best cover suicide; and
  • Communicated with hundreds of thousands of individuals through our website, social media, brochures, speakers and efforts to generate press coverage.


Care Management Technologies (CMT)
Care Management Technologies (CMT) is a firm with broad expertise and extensive experience in behavioral health and advanced technologies. It is this combination of skills that has enabled CMT to develop proprietary health information technology that is behaviorally-health focused and unique in the marketplace.

CMT's best-in-class evidence-based behavioral health analytics and decision-support tools help payers and providers better coordinate care for their costliest, most complex members. CMT offers online analytics that are age banded (unique to the elderly, adult and child populations) that can be used as a scalable solution to address a variety of comorbid and complex disease presentations.

Over the past ten years, CMT has developed an extensive array of evidenced-based rules that promote improvements in care – both behaviorally and medically. CMT has validated rules that provide prospective identification of preventable hospitalizations and emergency room events, particularly focused on the inappropriate application of psychotropic and pain medicines. These tools, now accessible via CMT's online portal, ProAct, are used by health plans, behavioral health organizations, health homes, and ACOs to support the management of integrated and holistic care across the entire continuum of service settings.

Community Behavioral Health

The Pennsylvania Behavioral Health Choices Program (BHCP) began in 1997.     The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (the State) had determined that counties were uniquely positioned to manage behavioral health Medicaid resources due to existing legislative mandates that counties oversee their local behavioral health systems and carry out the functions of the Medicaid program.  As such, the State issued a Request for Proposals (RFP), providing counties the right of first opportunity to develop and implement the BHCP at the county level.
Philadelphia (the City/County) chose the State option to take full responsibility for the management of the behavioral health benefit for Medicaid recipients.   The City had been preparing - through a Robert Wood Johnson grant in the 1990’s - for this unique approach to managed care.  As a result, Philadelphia created Community Behavioral Health (CBH), a not for profit Administrative Services Organization (ASO), to administer the Behavioral Health Choices Program for the City.  CBH is under contract with the City to perform utilization review, quality management, provider network management, fiscal oversight and accountability for the approximately 460,000 Philadelphia residents currently enrolled in the Medical Assistance program.  

CBH currently contracts with over 200 agencies, serving over 100,000 individuals annually, providing a continuum of services.   The City has made a major investment in promoting Evidence Based Practices (EBPs) and created an innovative Evidenced Based Practices and Innovation Center (EPIC) to further that goal.  We have also established a robust Pay for Performance initiative that spans 95% of our levels of care – this year paying out over $5M.   CBH’s unique relationship within government promotes a broad cross systems human services approach to care.  From city public health initiatives such as community mural art projects and depression screening to coordinating housing first treatment services, CBH staff play an integral part in supporting the work of the city to improve mental health, diminish substance use, and promote good overall health for the citizens of Philadelphia.
