Spotlight on Nevada’s 988 Lifeline at Bamboo Health Booth #3435

In a special showcase, HLTH attendees can engage with Mele Eteuati, Case Management Coordinator for Crisis Support Services of Nevada (CSSNV), on Monday, Oct. 9 from 2:00-4:00 pm PST at Bamboo Health’s booth. Eteuati will share the transformative journey of using Bamboo Health’s OpenBeds® system to enhance Nevada’s 988 Suicide Prevention and Crisis Support Lifeline.

In addition to connecting with Eteuati, attendees are encouraged to download the case study that highlights CSSNV’s experience using the OpenBeds system. For every person who downloads the case study, Bamboo Health will donate to CSSNV.

The case study includes details about Nevada’s use of the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. It connects distressed individuals with trained counselors for immediate help and, when necessary, channels them to long-term treatment. Through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CSSNV integrated OpenBeds, a seamless referral system, to efficiently link individuals seeking mental health and substance use disorder aid with appropriate treatment providers. With OpenBeds in use by hospitals and behavioral health organizations across the state, electronic referrals have soared, enabling Nevada to promptly address its residents’ behavioral health demands.
