According to BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s Health Equity Report, “Indigenous Tennesseans reported 10 days per month with poor mental health, more than any other racial or ethnic group.” In the five years prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, almost all symptoms of substance abuse and mental health among adult Tennesseans deteriorated. Concentrating resources on mental health care is more crucial than ever as communities heal from the residual impacts of isolation. During this Crucial Conversation session, you will hear from experts in the behavioral health field addressing issues society is facing today. We will highlight innovative and evidence-based practices that can be adopted and scaled in your organization. Come prepared to dig deep into how we can support our community and collaborate to deliver equitable care leading to better health outcomes for our community.
