than control families; they had higher prevalence rates of medical conditions, both the other adults in that family as well as the children; and that they were also able to experience reduced medical spending, that family members had an ancillary effect from the treatment intervention in reduced costs. So, again, I think this was very compelling data coming out of Kaiser Permanente. I know that also earlier this year data was published coming out of Washington State that looked at the fact that by providing additional substance use treatment they were able to significantly reduce growth in total healthcare expenditures for that population receiving that (ph) intervention. On the Center for Integrated Health Solutions’ website you can find information around cost offsets. But again these are the kinds of discussions and the kinds of data that we want to be able to bring to other healthcare providers as they’re putting together healthcare homes for why mental health and substance use need to be included. Teah (ph), can we go to the next slide? [0:25:27] All right. So the next slide when you see it will be moving us in to look at the other quadrants of folks with more serious disorders and their needs. The - and really I think the most compelling figure for us in the field was first published in 2006 by The National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors and that was I think confirmed what a lot of us knew, that people with serious mental illness being (inaudible at 0:26:21) at young ages, frequently in their low to mid-50s, and that a significant reason for this early death was other chronic illnesses that these folks were living with. ______________________________________________________________________________________ 25193ea6062d74eaa1fb4080b67349c6a7de8baf.doc Page 6 of 20

And I think this has also been a call to us as a field to begin to challenge us to do a better job of meeting the underlying physical health needs of populations living both with serious mental illness, with chronic addictions. There are comparable data from Oregon looking at people with co-occurring disorders, chronic mental illness and addiction. And one study published in Oregon, the average of death there was I think was 46. So that both of these disorders have terrible consequences for individuals. Just look at a few more slides and talk about the data. Teah (ph), can we move to the next slide? [0:27:34] Again, looking at - this is some data from Massachusetts. Death by heart disease, by age group. And we see that folks enrolled in Medicaid who had serious mental illness had significantly higher rates of death by heart disease than the average Medicaid population. Teah (ph) can you go to the next slide? The next slide is an analysis from Maine Medicaid. And again, looking at a range of health conditions and comparing individuals with serious mental illness compared to those without. And in every case the rates of those illness were much higher in the SMI population.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
