Behavioral Health Promotion
ERASE staff and partners believe that addiction and behavioral health are directly linked and that a person’s overall wellness has a significant impact on one’s risk for developing or deepening an addiction or mental health problem. ERASE is currently establishing two strategies to address these complex problems. One strategy will focus on promoting the use of Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) and depression screening across our region. The second involves raising awareness of the signs of mental health distress and diffusing difficult situations. Stay tuned for information about upcoming trainings to address both of these new efforts.
