The Intersection of SDoH and Behavioral Health
To say times are stressful would be an understatement. Aside from taking a toll on us mentally, the global pandemic has cast a huge spotlight on our nation’s glaring disparities when it comes to social determinants of health (SDoH). The health industry, now super-charged by the necessity of treating the whole person, has shifted their models to open up more care pathways for those with both emotional and social barriers to health.
But, addressing those SDoH comes with opportunities – opportunities for learning, understanding, garnering insights and ultimately improving the support and treatment of each individual. While continuing to evolve, defining what it means to treat individuals with both SDoH and behavioral health needs leads to a lot of unanswered questions. Join experts to gain more clarity into what it means to care for the whole person.
