This session will discuss the benefits, challenges, and opportunities of MLPs, including the impact of MLP interventions at the individual, clinic, and population levels. Psychiatrists and lawyers will present case examples on how MLP has benefitted patients, transformed clinical practices, and provided a pathway to effect policy change. It will also address concrete ways that participants can develop MLPs in their own behavioral health clinical settings.
