IPHCA offers periodic meetings to provide opportunities for peer-to-peer networking among clinicians/members of IPHCA on behavioral health issues. The meetings are a venue to promote information sharing, learning, and networking among behavioral health clinicians, and other interested staff at member CHCs. In addition, through the discussions, participants assist IPHCA in identifying and addressing members’ needs as they relate to behavioral health information and resources.
