Exploring the History of Community Mental Health and Identifying Strategies to Advance Population Wide Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental health is at the heart many of the challenges we face, including trauma and adverse childhood experiences, social isolation, institutionalized bias and discrimination, and "diseases of despair" that manifest in depression, suicide, and substance misuse. Addressing social determinants of health is key to helping communities navigate adversity, heal, and flourish.

Dialogue4HealthPart one of the Web Forum series, Back to Our Roots: Exploring the History of Community Mental Health and Identifying Strategies to Advance Population Wide Mental Health and Wellbeing will provide an overview on how improving community conditions can reduce the incidence and intensity of mental health challenges, and help activate resilience.

This Web Forum is recommended for public health professionals, healthcare providers, behavioral health providers, community based organizations, faith-based organizations, and philanthropy/funders. Registration is free, thanks to support from the Prevention Institute and Blue Shield of California Foundation. Closed captioning will be available for all attendees.
