The Frontline Focus: A New Era in Complex Mental Healthcare for Health Systems

Tuesday, August 27, 2024  |  1:00 p.m. CT (2:00 p.m. ET)

Navigating the complexities of mental healthcare can be challenging, especially for those already working in healthcare. Physicians, who face constant exposure to stress and traumatic events, have one of the highest rates of suicide compared to any other profession. In this webinar, we’ll explore the transformative power of innovative mental health services, in partnership with Mount Sinai and Hazelden Betty Ford, for healthcare works dealing with severe mental health issues.

We will address the unique challenges faced by health systems, identify gaps in current mental health benefits and share insights into evidence-based approaches for providing seamless, high-quality care. Join us to understand how dedicated support for complex mental health needs can lead to better outcomes, reduced readmissions and significant cost savings, ultimately enhancing the well-being of your healthcare workers and communities.
