The BHPC Summit will especially focus on education, communication, and improving access to services for individuals struggling with mental illness.
Seventy-five percent of a person’s mental and physical health is determined by social factors such as poverty, housing, violence, and education. This year’s program will look at some of the largest impacts on a person’s physical and mental health and what resources are available here on Cape Cod to address them.
The Summit is designed for those who provide care or support services across the entirety of the behavioral health spectrum including physicians, psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses, administrators, peer advocates, first responders, public safety, teachers and other health professionals serving children/adults and their families in our community.
