Title : How 2020 proved mental health is health. Magnifying the importance of taking a holistic approach to mental health

Abstract:

Abstract: In this session, Vertava Health’s SVP Outpatient Division, II Awstin Gregg, MBA, LCSW, LCDC who is based in the Dallas Fort-Worth metro area will discuss the critical importance of taking a holistic approach to mental health and advancing a continuum of care for patients wherever they are in their mental health journey. Drawing on recent data and lessons learned from helping families in therapy over the past year, Awstin will explore enhanced strategies focused on the outpatient adolescent population and factors that contributed to high-quality care. One of the factors includes strategies to optimize communication with family and caregivers to help level set in terms of what the patient and the family can expect through every facet of their treatment - before they enter into programming, during their treatment and how to communicate post-treatment. Awstin can also speak to evolving perceptions about mental health care from his experience and based on his work with colleagues and patients across Vertava Health’s broader network of treatment centers and ongoing efforts aimed to continue to reduce the stigma of treating mental health.
