Mental Health and the Affordable Care Act - A CPAT Complimentary Luncheon Seminar
Wednesday, May 29, 2013 from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM (PDT)
Mental health is one of the most important, but often overlooked, aspects of overall health. The issues impact all of us – individuals, families or entire communities. Whether it is depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia or substance abuse, we must work to improve access to vital mental health care services. Only through education, and partnership with health care systems, community-based organizations and faith-based groups, can we increase the number of people who believe that they can take action to maintain and protect their mental health.
During this informative luncheon, participants will learn:
- The current state of mental health in California.
- The challenges communities face when trying to access mental health care services.
- The implementation of the Affordable Care Act and what parity, mental health and substance abuse treatments will be included.
- How organizations like yours can help enroll people in plans offered through Covered California and ensure high levels of health care utilization.
