Training & TA - What's Coming Up

BRIC Monthly Webinar Series (Required)
Mental Health, Social Isolation, Food and Nutrition Security. What’s the Connection?, May 25, 2022, 2:00-3:30pm ET, REGISTER

In recognition of May as Mental Health Awareness Month, this month’s learning opportunity will focus on the theme – mental health is public health. Mental health is more than just a disorder, as seen by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on increased stress, anxiety, depression. In this month’s webinar, Mental Health America will explore mental health as a public health issue and discuss the relationship between mental health and the social determinants of health including food and nutrition security, safe physical activity access, and social connectedness; equity and how each relate to each other. We will hear from state health departments on how they have approached and integrated mental health from a policy, systems and environmental change lens.

A framework, in early development, to addresses social isolation through the socio-ecological model was presented to encourage a multi-sector and systems approach.
