A comprehensive needs assessment and strategic plan was conducted for behavioral health services in Palm Beach County across the spectrum – from prevention and early intervention to deep end services. Following this process, key community partners have come together to create a collective impact initiative focused on enhancing the behavioral health system in Palm Beach County. With the goal of implementing Palm Beach County’s Behavioral Health Strategic Plan (attached), the partners are interested in establishing a collective impact approach to implementing the Plan activities. The partners envision that this work will occur in two phases – the approach development phase and the approach implementation phase.

Through this RFQ, the partners seek a professionally-qualified consultant to facilitate them through the approach development phase only (9-12 months).  Because the success of the approach implementation phase will hinge on the successful completion of the approach development phase, strong deliverables during this phase are imperative.

The timeline for this RFQ process is as follows:
