Integrated care models increase access AND normalize mental health care?

Thanks to the panel for starting with certain specific topics and moving to how they are all related. Food insecurity is related to mental illness. Stress does related to physical and mental health.

I have also stopped looking at the news. It’s too much.
Hetal Patel
52:55
We have a certain idea of what mental illness looks like and when someone doesn't "look" depressed/anxious/etc. they often go overlooked and I believe that is why it is so important for primary care doctors to ask those questions of mood, etc, like Dr. Smith is doing to catch those who may slip by us.
Sarah Langer

Charlotte is also the wealthiest community in North Carolina--how do we resource this away from NC's higher-resource areas?
Wendy Buck Petteway

We need more peer support in the eastern part of the state- paid positions supported by the LME/MCO and their providers.
Andrew Shoenig, Rural Forward NC

Yes - the broadband gaps are great - thanks for brining this up
Wendy Buck Petteway
01:08:07
My husband sits on Central Region CFAC, Trillium board and is a certified peer support specialist and has been for years. He is currently considering trying to work as a peer support in a paid position; but we have been hesitant because of the lack of support for peer services in the east up to now. He does peer support as a community service and to help those around him. I work for the school system and we are trying to provide better mental health services to our students and adults.
