The California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA) is seeking qualified subject matter experts, consumers and their family members for three comprehensive and coordinated initiatives (Suicide Prevention, Stigma and Discrimination Reduction and Student Mental Health) that will be implemented over the next four years. These initiatives are part of the Statewide Prevention and Early Intervention Implementation Work Plan (Work Plan http://www.calmhsa.org/downloads/Revised-CalMHSA-Implementation-Work-Plan.pdf) under the Mental Health Services Act. We are attempting to establish a pool of subject matter experts, consumers and their family members who are best suited for specific tasks related to the above initiatives. As the need arises, applicants will be contacted and given follow up information and instructions. If you would like to be considered for the subject matter pool, please complete the application package that consists of the attached: 1) Subject Matter Expert Application; 2) Conflict No Conflict Program Chart; and include a copy of your resume. Completed documents should be returned to Adele James at: adele@adelejamesconsulting.com by Monday, February 28, 2011.

Dear Sir/Madame,

The California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA) is seeking qualified subject matter experts for three comprehensive and coordinated initiatives (Suicide Prevention, Stigma and Discrimination Reduction and Student Mental Health) that will be implemented over the next four years. These initiatives are part of the Statewide Prevention and Early Intervention Implementation Work Plan (Work Plan http://www.calmhsa.org/downloads/Revised-CalMHSA-Implementation-Work-Plan.pdf) under the Mental Health Services Act.

CalMHSA is an independent administrative and fiscal government agency focused on the efficient delivery of California mental health projects. In April 2010, the Department of Mental Health (DMH) contracted with CalMHSA to administer the funding and implementation of three statewide prevention and early intervention strategic plans in the areas of Suicide Prevention, Stigma and Discrimination Reduction, and Student Mental Health.

The California Institute for Mental Health (CiMH), on behalf of CalMHSA, is recruiting a diverse pool of subject matter experts who will be involved in providing consultation in the development of the request for proposals, evaluation of proposal submissions, and participation on future advisory committees. We are also seeking representatives with lived experience with mental illness, their family members and/or caregivers. Cultural competence is critical as funds are intended to serve California’s diverse populations. Therefore we are also seeking representatives of underserved ethnic, racial, and cultural groups, who will serve as subject matter experts.

We are attempting to establish a pool of subject matter experts who are best suited for specific tasks related to the above initiatives. Each task has its own requirements and timeline. Therefore, not all applicants will be suited for participation. As the need arises, applicants will be contacted and given follow up information and instructions.

Some activities performed by subject matter experts, such as reviewing/providing feedback during the RFP development process or participating on proposal review panels, require a certain level of confidentiality and non-conflicts of interest. Because of this, it may not always be publically disclosed as to who has been assigned to a project until it is completed. It is our goal to maintain transparency. However, when it may create confidentiality conflicts, we may not be able to disclose the names of participants in certain activities/tasks/projects.

If you are interested in being considered as a subject matter expert, please complete and return the: 1) attached application; 2) your resume; 3) and the Non-Conflict of Interest form by Monday February 28, 2011, to Adele James at adele@adelejamesconsulting.com. If you have any questions, please contact Adele at 916-947-6092.

Sincerely,
