SCLC held a kickoff event on January 17th, 2019 to introduce the California Behavioral Health and Wellness Initiative (CABHWI). During this event, grantees met fellow cohort participants and acquired knowledge about tobacco use in the behavioral health population. Attendees also learned about available tools and resources to assist with the process of going tobacco-free and created an action plan with a timeline for meeting program objectives.
SCLC congratulates the following organizations as the first CABHWI cohort:
- Alcoholism Center for Women
- Epidaurus DBA Amity Foundation
- Champions Recovery Alternative Program Services
- Yolo Wayfarer Center DBA Fourth and Hope
- Fred Brown’s Recovery Services
- Janus of Santa Cruz
Services awarded to this first of three cohorts include a $36,000 grant, in-person and virtual trainings, monthly one-on-one assistance, a Community of Practice (CoP) learning collaborative, and tools for integrating overall wellness offerings into regular activities.
