Identifying and Measuring the Social Determinants of Mental Health in Clinical Practice

About this Event:

As mental health care providers work to address the needs of individuals in their day-to-day work, it can be difficult to treat mental health challenges without also treating the underlying contributors to those challenges. The Social Determinants of Mental Health (SDOMH) are the non-medical societal factors that influence the mental health outcomes of patients, peers, and clients. These intersecting conditions in which a person is born, in which they age, live, and work, all factor into that person’s health. If clinicians learn how these factors impact engagement in care and how to measure these factors’ effect on patients’ outcomes, then they can utilize more comprehensive and effective treatment strategies to address mental health needs. In this 1.5 hour webinar we'll discuss how to identify the SDOMH and how to measure for them in clinical practice.

Learning objectives:

1) Describe how the SDOMH impact patients’ mental health, and their access to and engagement in care.

2) Discuss the benefits and challenges of implementing a tool to measure the SDOMH.

3) Describe one example of a measurement tool and how it can be utilized in practice.
