BHbusiness - Mastering Essential Business Operations
Application

There are two ways to apply to BHbusiness:
  1. A convener – such as a Single State Agency (SSA), State Mental Health Agency (SMHA), Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC), provider association, or network of providers – may bring together a group of providers in a BHbusiness learning network and coordinate the applications of the group. Through experience we have learned that the learning networks are most beneficial when they are made up of organizations that share similar experiences, challenges, and goals, and so convened networks are recommended. Conveners choose one course for their providers to participate in, which becomes their learning network.

  2. Individual organizations may also apply. It is encouraged that you form into a new network and apply as a convened network. If that is not possible, you can still apply to join a network as an individual provider. You will be placed in a new network by the BHbusiness team. Each new network will include an estimated 15-20 organizations. These organizations may or may not be in your geographical area. They will include a mix of behavioral health provider organizations. You choose one course to participate in, which becomes your learning network.
