CBHL Member Roundtable: The Intersection of Poverty, Lived Experience, and Mental Health
January 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am MST
Poverty is one of the most significant social determinants of mental health, intersecting with all other determinants – housing, community conditions, race and ethnicity, immigration status, access to care, and the built environment. Poverty can cause poor mental health through social stresses, stigma, and trauma. And, poor mental health can lead to impoverishment through loss of employment or fragmentation of relationships.
We can’t respond effectively to our client’s mental and substance use concerns unless we understand their life circumstances, including the impact of poverty on their lives. Some communities have piloted efforts like guaranteed income or child tax credits. The Housing First model has proven to reduce housing instability. Yet poverty continues to be a barrier.
Join us for a CBHL Member Roundtable on January 19 at 9am PT / 12pm ET to learn and share comprehensive strategies to addressing poverty at the community, state, and federal level.
This Roundtable is exclusive for CBHL Members!
When: January 19 at 9:00am PST / 10:00am MST / 11:00am CST / 12:00pm EST
