Policy Meets Practice

We support local small- and mid-size organizations that are working to advance recommendations outlined in the Think Bigger Do Good Policy Series.

Approach All Grants

Overviewssss

Policy and practice must work in tandem to drive critical systems changes. The Think Bigger Do Good Policy Paper Series provides policy solutions to our nation’s most pressing behavioral health issues. Though public policy has broad and deep impacts for families and communities, public policy discussions often occur without those most affected at the table. 

This grant program supports local, small- and mid-size organizations that are working directly with communities to address issues that relate to, inform, and advance the policy discussions outlined in this series. Each grant cycle focuses on a different paper, or set of papers.

2022 Think Bigger Do Good Policy Paper of Focus

Policy Paper of Focus

The goal of this grant program is to reinforce strategies outlined in the Think Bigger Do Good Policy Paper, Enhancing the Capacity of the Mental Health and Addiction Workforce: A Framework. Recommendations are made on three levels – clinical, community, and individual.

For the purposes of this grant, we are seeking to support programs that expand the community behavioral health workforce by investing in peers and other nontraditional community workers. Community mental health workers can divert care from an overextended clinical workforce by delivering interventions that focus on prevention, recovery, mitigation, and/or harm reduction. Existing models that promote the benefits of situating mental, social, and spiritual support services within the community setting include community health workers/promotoras, peer support services, and other frontline public health workers.

These roles are described in further detail in the policy paper, Enhancing the Capacity of the Mental Health and Addiction Workforce: A Framework
