Hospitals have never faced a more challenging time caring for individuals with mental disease, substance use disorders or developmental disabilities. These people sometimes present with multiple complex comorbidities in addition to their behavioral disorders or developmental disability. These individuals and their caregivers face enormous challenges in the community finding accessible support and care to help them engage in healthy lifestyles. In recent years, the Missouri Department of Mental Health and Missouri Behavioral Health Council have implemented numerous statewide initiatives to strengthen community support programs. The Missouri Hospital Association is collaborating with MBHC subject matter experts and emergency medical services to bring hospitals a series of workshops that highlight available programs. Hospital staff will learn how to help this population access these support programs, as well as have an opportunity to provide feedback to impact the future effectiveness of these services.   

This educational activity is provided by MHA Health Institute.
