The 26th Annual STEP Symposium: Social Determinants of Mental Health and Recovery
April 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Social Determinants of Mental Health and Recovery
The William and Ida Friday Center Saturday, April 6, 2019
Traditional medical and psychiatric health care represents only a modest portion of an individual’s overall health and wellness. It is increasingly recognized that community factors and other social determinants of health, including housing, transportation, food security, employment and social connectedness, play a significant role in health, wellness and recovery. At the 26th Annual STEP Symposium, we will present the importance of the community in maintaining health and wellness and in supporting recovery. We will also explore how healthcare systems are approaching social determinants of health and how communities can support the health, wellness and recovery of individuals living with mental illness.
Audience: Psychiatrists, social workers, psychologists, state mental health authorities, LME-MCO staff, other mental health professionals, persons living with mental illness, family members, and advocates.
