    Announcing the Familiar Faces Leadership Network

    The Familiar Faces Initiative (FFI): Improving Outcomes through Coordinated Health and Justice Systems launched on May 12, underscoring community leaders’ commitment to improving life outcomes for high-needs residents with complex behavioral health conditions. At the launch, the National Association of Counties (NACo) announced new opportunities for counties and cities to engage in his work, including joining a Leadership Network of county and city leaders interested in creating or expanding cross-system data-sharing efforts.

    NACo is excited to announce the first cohort of the Familiar Faces Leadership Network. The network will strengthen the capacity of county and city leaders to collect and share data across local departments and providers so that jurisdictions can identify their familiar faces and align these systems to improve outcomes for their highest-needs residents.

    Over the next year, the Familiar Faces Leadership Network will explore the systems at play in the behavioral health and justice continuum and the level of interaction required to achieve a supportive care model for familiar faces. The group will engage with peers, participate in peer site visits to communities with model data-sharing practices and receive technical assistance from FFI Advisory Board members.
