The Bizzell Group (Bizzell) is pleased to kick off our second year of support to the Office of the Director (OD) for the Center for Mental Health Services within the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). CMHS leads federal efforts to improve the quality and availability of prevention and treatment services for behavioral health disorders. To date, Bizzell has provided in-depth research and writing on current and emerging behavioral healthcare trends and practices in various media including speeches, blogs, PowerPoint presentations, white papers, reports, and issue briefs. Bizzell has also offered editorial and design support, meeting and retreat facilitation, leadership coaching, staff development and business process analyses.
Moving forward, Bizzell will deliver the same high quality services and offer our collective expertise in a wide range of behavioral health topics. These include evidence-based behavioral health and wellness practices, effective intervention and treatment strategies for people with serious mental illnesses, primary and behavioral healthcare integration and financing, homelessness services, mental health and recovery promotion, and cultural competency. “It’s been an honor to support CMHS’ essential mission to promote better healthcare and wellness for adults and children who experience mental illnesses,” said Anton Bizzell, M.D., CEO of Bizzell. “Given that nearly 20% of Americans experience a diagnosable mental illness each year, effective and accessible treatment and prevention services are crucial. Bizzell looks forward to continuing to promote CMHS’ vital initiatives by providing customized consultation services and subject matter expertise to CMHS in the areas of program and resource development, as well as business operations.” With a niche in healthcare, research and communications, Bizzell is committed to supporting initiatives like these that build healthy communities and individuals.
