Why Should You Provide Behavioral Health Services Now?
COVID-19 has emphasized the importance of mental health services. According to a June 2021 report, 40% of people had mental health or substance abuse problems. Patients/clients receiving home care experienced unprecedented levels of anxiety and depression due to the increased isolation caused by COVID-19. Still more troubling, the suicide rate in many states now exceeds the COVID-19 mortality rate. Over the past two years, COVID-19 quarantines and closures have strained access to mental health services despite the demonstrated need for them. In this session, we'll discuss why your organization should provide behavioral health services, and how adding this service can assist patients/clients with managing mental health conditions, which can negatively affect their medical comorbidities.
