KHC Fourth Annual Conference

Connecting Mental and Physical Health: Successful Models of Integrated Care

Mental health, including substance abuse, has increasingly become the priority of employers, providers, payers, and legislators. The impact of poor mental health on the economy, communities, and the lives of millions of Americans and their families can no longer be ignored. Mental health issues continue to be under-identified and under-treated which ultimately leads to poorer quality of life and increased healthcare costs.

Communities are looking to key healthcare stakeholders to help find solutions. Yet, many organizations do not feel armed with the knowledge to successfully address the mental health of their employees, patients, members, and citizens. Join the KHC’s 2018 annual conference to learn the latest evidenced-based approaches, best practices, and successful models of addressing mental health issues.
