What’s happening: CHA will host a webinar on May 10 at 9 a.m. (PT) about a new option for hospitals to connect frequent users of emergency departments (EDs) and inpatient psychiatric services to the help they need: the Community, Assistance, Recovery & Empowerment (CARE) Act. 

What else to know: The webinar is free for CHA members, and registration is required.  

The webinar will help hospitals learn about the new CARE Act option for getting patients into care and housing, including how hospitals can directly refer patients to the CARE Act process.  

It will also feature Katherine Warburton, DO, medical director for the California Department of State Hospitals and an expert on decriminalizing mental illness.
