A Healthier Nation: Strategies to Improve Resiliency, Breakdown Stigma & Collaborate
September — The colliding challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic and national crises are placing increasing demands on the behavioral health industry, families, and communities across the country. These national crises include increasing unemployment, reductions in income, food hardships, and homelessness just to name a few. They have required healthcare delivery systems and providers to implement new, innovative strategies for connecting with those in need and other stakeholders delivering care. As we observe and take action during National Suicide Prevention Month in September, this session will present ideas for spreading awareness, expanding the national dialogue about mental health, and strategies for connecting with communities, schools, and other partners.
