Historically, the US healthcare system has separated physical health from mental health. This fragmentation leads to difficulty for people in navigating two separate healthcare systems. This fragmentation is exacerbated by mental health care being harder to access, more expensive, and stigmatized. Integrating mental health care into a primary care setting is an opportunity to address these challenges and support whole person health, an approach that involves considering all aspects of a person’s life that influence their health and wellbeing, including biological, behavioral, social, and environmental factors.
Join the Kentuckiana Health Collaborative on December 5 from 9am-11am to discuss the opportunities our healthcare system has to prioritize integrated care and ultimately improve both physical and mental health outcomes for our community.
