What Healthcare Leaders are Doing to Address Behavioral Health

The healthcare industry has shown an increase in behavioral health cases as more and more patients are showing signs of mental illness. Conditions like depression, anxiety, and dementia have spiked in numbers and are changing how health systems handle these disorders. Gun violence has been an example of how individuals with struggling cognitive function have severely changed the industry’s focus onto behavioral health, while the opioid crisis has been an increasingly alarming topic as the rise of deaths from overdosing these medications has come to an all time high.

 

Key topics:

 

  • Statistics for rising mental illnesses

  • How to combat large amounts of behavioral health cases

  • How to provide the staff to care for these patients

  • Dealing with the PTSD of patients and their care takers after a behavioral episode

  • Developing strategies for identifying and supporting individuals and populations struggling with substance abuse/addiction/risk of addiction
