New Foundation Behavioral Health Tools

Opioid Patient Education Video
The NCHA Opioid Patient Education Video was created by the University of California Davis Center for Design in the Public Interest. It was funded by the NC Department of Public Health’s Injury and Violence Prevention Branch and is available for public use. The intended audience is for adults (18 and older) who are being prescribed an opioid for either chronic or an acute condition (i.e. post-surgical). The video can be shown in both inpatient (hospital) and outpatient (primary care, specialty care) settings, community/patient education events, or through patient-facing electronic medical record portals. More details are online here. NCHA members are encouraged to use and share the video. For questions on how to embed this video into your system or any other questions, contact Madison Ward Willis at

New Online Learning Tool To Understand Changes to the IVC Process
A continued priority for NCHA is improving the treatment for people living with behavioral health conditions to ensure patients receive the right treatment at the right place and right time. Senate Bill 630, Revise Involuntary Commitment (IVC) Laws to Improve Behavioral Health, became law June 22, 2018. With overwhelming bipartisan support, SB 630 provides a comprehensive update to be in line with best practices for involuntary commitment, voluntary treatment, and outpatient commitment. The law become effective on Oct. 1, 2019 and makes significant changes within the behavioral health crisis system. Given the magnitude of the changes, NCHA has an online learning tool to help providers, patients, and policymakers better understand how the law will impact patient care. You can learn more by clicking here.
