Why Should You Provide Behavioral Health Now?
May 12 @ 11:15 am – 12:15 pm
The Covid-19 Pandemic has brought to light the explosive need for Mental Health Services. A June Report (reference) showed that 40% of people admitted they struggled with mental health and substance abuse issues. Quarantines and shutdowns due to COVID-19 have made it hard for people to access behavioral health services. Our home care clients suffer from increased isolation which causes depression and anxiety at unprecedented rates. Suicide death rates have surpassed COVID death rates in many states. You can provide Behavioral Health services to help your clients manage their mental health conditions that we know impact their medical co-morbidities. Learn why and how your agency can provide Behavioral Health services.
