Consulting and Customized Services
Olivia Loewy, Ph.D. and Associates brings together a diverse group of professionals dedicated to supporting the needs of the public behavioral health workforce.
In the past decade, public systems of healthcare have undergone massive and rapid change resulting in an alarming lack of connection, coordination and communication between the “real world” of county/community behavioral health and those responsible for raising the next generation of providers.
Broad, sweeping national changes have been implemented somewhat differently in each state. In California, the incorporation of specific updated policies and procedures has varied further still in response the unique needs of each county. And in most counties, community agency contractors are encouraged to develop programs and services that respond to the needs of a designated treatment population.
OLA consulting and customized services focus on the development of relevant and useful community connections. We will work with you to develop tailored training, forums and programs that promote meaningful connection, collaboration and communication to achieve seamless systems of community care.
