Knocking at Your Door: The National Mental Health Crisis is Actually a Local Public Health Issue
Reeling from the pandemic, political divide, economic stress, health inequities, and work-life changes, communities are seeing 2-3 times higher rates of anxiety, depression, burnout, and many other forms of mental distress. The acute shortage of mental health care providers has left individuals waiting months for an appointment or they end up fending for themselves.

The challenges for public health are to identify risk factors, increase awareness about mental disorders and the effectiveness of interventions, decrease stigma, eliminate health disparities, and improve access to mental health care through better triage.

Join NACCHO and CredibleMind on Wednesday, September 21 at 3 PM ET to find out what the research is showing from UC Berkeley School of Public Health and other professionals, plus learn about practical approaches for bending this curve in your community. The presentation will include a new system now available to jump-start evidence-based prevention and early intervention, triaged access to relevant local mental health resources.

Using local health department case studies, learn how new "population mental health" models, methodologies, and approaches can bring together Public Health and Behavioral Health to make an immediate impact.
