Oct 20-Jan 4 PRA Online On Demand Program on the Social Determinants of Health

NYAPRS Note: The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association (NYAPRS’ national organization) is offering an on-demand program discussing the Social Determinants of Health presented by Lisa Razzano, PhD, CPRP, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Deputy Director of the Center on Mental Health Services Research and Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Lupita Pivaral, MA, a research assistant at Thresholds. See below for details.

Social Determinants

This program focuses on social determinants of health as defined in Health People 2020 and applied to the SAMHSA 8 Dimensions of Wellness. With the impact of chronic health conditions on illness morbidity and mortality among people in recovery, recognizing the ways in which these social determinants affect health and wellness is a critical issue for psychiatric rehabilitation programs. Discussion includes examples of the ways these factors affect community health and provides basic strategies for implementing health and wellness initiatives within agencies. In particular, facilitators review the impact of social determinants on health within two example locations. This course is the first in a series of webinars focusing on chronic health conditions that differentially affect people in recovery and tools that can be used to promote wellness.
