In a recent CLPHA member survey, 84 percent said access to behavioral and mental health services, including substance use treatment, is one of the biggest health challenges for their residents. PHA residents are dealing with everything from acute mental health crises to the stress and anxiety of living in poverty, but forward-thinking PHAs are collaborating with health partners to help address these behavioral health challenges.

During this episode, recorded from a panel at CLPHA's Fall Meeting in October 2023, you'll hear from experts addressing community mental health needs from different approaches, including mental health first aid staff training,stress management programs and community partnerships, and the expansion of certified community behavioral health clinics. We hope you'll enjoy this stimulating conversation!
