Collaborating Across Systems for Program Implementation (CASPI) Toolkit

Collaboration strategies are methods for aligning organizational operations and services, or the ways organizations, leaders, and professionals work together. There are many ways to collaborate across systems and each type of partnership can serve a different goal. The CASPI toolkit was designed to help support collaboration decisions. There are 3 sections:

  1. Collaboration Strategies for Implementation – specific strategies used to align systems for implementation.
  2. Developing Formal Partnership Agreements – a guide for developing formal contracts and MOU’s to support implementation.
  3. Engaging Behavioral Health Boards – there are several ways in which behavioral health boards and other community coalitions/councils can be really helpful for developing collaborative partnerships
