Webinar Description from CIHS: Individuals with mental health and substance use conditions are at greater risk for medical conditions - such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes and COPD - than the general population. While integrating primary care into behavioral health is one solution to reducing the rates of chronic medical conditions, psychiatrists and other behavioral health providers who operate in stand-alone mental health and addiction treatment organizations can also make strides toward identifying chronic conditions and getting their clients the treatment they need. In partnership with the American Psychiatric Association, CIHS invites you to join this webinar to learn how to transfer the latest research and on-the-ground experiences on medical monitoring into implementable practices for psychiatrists and other behavioral health providers in community behavioral health care settings.
