Learning Collaborative

Community Partnerships to Improve Depression Care

With the generous support of Archstone Foundation, the University of Washington and the University of California, Davis released an RFP January 1, 2020 for those interested in joining a learning collaborative to improve depression care for older adults. Participants learned to partner with community-based organizations (CBOs) and innovate to address patient’s physical, behavioral, and social needs to improve care.

We awarded four partnerships to participate in a learning collaborative to improve depression care for older adults and reduce mental health disparities. The four selected partnerships include:

  1. Community Health Centers of the Central Coast (CHCCC) and Food Bank of Santa Barbara County (FBSBC)
  2. Eisner Health and Special Service for Groups’ SILVER Program
  3. San Bernardino County Department of Aging and Adult Services Age Wise program and Lifestyle Medical
  4. Grove by Sutter Health and Council on Aging, Santa Rosa, CA.

Each partnership received a one-year award of $30,000 for participating in a continuous quality improvement learning community.

  • Learning Collaborative Dates: July 2021 – June 2022
