This virtual roundtable, hosted by the National Network to Eliminate Disparities in Behavioral Health (NNED) will explore the potential for broad partnerships to build the evidence of effectiveness for behavioral health best practices in diverse communities. Panelists will provide a brief history of community-defined evidence and practices in behavioral and mental health, and recognize evidence on a spectrum. They will also discuss strategic partnerships to enhance practice and model the way to continue bringing community-defined evidence practice to the national stage.

Learning Objectives:
• Determine benefits of building the evidence for community and promising practices
• Highlight innovative initiatives that leverage key partnerships to build new evidence
• Identify steps that CBOs, evaluators, funders, and policy makers can take to move community-defined evidence/practice into evidence-based practice

Who should attend?
• NNED members
• Community-based organizations (program directors, administrators, evaluators)
• Evaluators interested in community-based initiatives and equitable evaluation
• Funders invested in equitable evaluation and community-defined practice
• Technical assistance providers supporting community-defined initiatives
