2014 Rural Behavioral Health Webinar Series  

Learning Objectives:

Description: 
The behavioral health and well-being of any community and its members is significantly connected to the social and physical contexts in which the community exists and its members’ function. In essence, these contexts refer to social determinants or social factors that impact behavioral health outcomes and well-being either positively or negatively.   This webinar will discuss the impact of social determinants and provide strategies for addressing the negative impact of certain social determinants on children, youth and families in rural communities with a special focus on infants, toddlers and preschool age children and their families.  Additionally, the webinar will engage participants in discussion about how to effectively use available tools and strategies to reduce disparities and improve outcomes.
