Behavioral health is a major issue for the city and for the individuals inflicted, the results can be devasting and impact everyone and everything around them. Healthy Illinois 2021 has a Behavioral Health Action Team that is looking to improve treatment and solutions for mental health. To start with, the action team met five times as well as weekly calls over an eight-week period to cover the most pertinent issues. In order to start the process, the group came up with three subgroups for implementing goals, they are: prevention, early intervention and treatment perspective. A few of the implementations set for prevention are to “prevent unnecessary exposure to narcotic pain medications” and develop educational campaigns to promote awareness. Early intervention includes involving primary care providers that provide care and engaging them in training for other providers as well as seeking out the providers who provide that early intervention for patients. Treatment areas include expanding access to all areas for mental health and substance abuse and including additional health coverage for opiate dependency. References About Mental Health Programs .

    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.
