Vision and Leadership The El Paso Behavioral Health Consortium (Consortium) convened to examine the El Paso community behavioral health system in preparation for future service needs and funding trends.
The Consortium envisions an accessible, person-centered behavioral health system of care in the El Paso region. Its actions are informed by community leaders and available data including an El Paso County behavioral health system assessment conducted in 2014.
Knowing that existing groups have projects underway in various sectors of the behavioral health system, the Consortium developed strategic leadership councils to seek out and engage organizations in communication, coordination, and collaboration to achieve the vision.
Strategic Leadership Councils The Consortium Leadership Councils include leaders and key stakeholders with influence in priority areas identified by the El Paso Behavioral Health System Assessment: behavioral health integration, Justice and family behavioral health. Each Leadership Council is chaired by a Consortium Executive Committee member with background in the identified arena. Each Leadership Council will engage existing community action groups in collaboration and organizational policy change for greater impact from resources and services.
