Mental Health disorders can place a financial burden on the client, family and the health care system. In a 2001 study by Wang, Berglund and Kessler in the Journal of Internal Medicine, they conclude," An epidemic of untreated mental disorder exists in the United States, especially among vulnerable groups such as African Americans and the underinsured.. Cost effective interventions are needed to improve both the access to and quality of treatment." The focus of this lecture will be on prevention, current treatment of mental health disorders and the effects on the client, family, community and health care system. Come and Ask the experts!
