Sierra Summit Behavioral Health is creating a forum for local health providers at their first “Biannual All Providers Meeting” from 6 to 8 p.m. on April 16 at 350 Crown Point Circle, Suite 150 in Grass Valley.
The effort was motivated by the organization’s dedication to designing programs and services that address all the different aspects of a client’s health needs in addition to their mental health symptoms.
SSBH’s treatment philosophy is based on the idea that sustainable wellness and recovery can only be achieved when the clients are able to receive well rounded care. Organizers say that in order for mental health providers to be successful in helping their clients, they need to collaborate with other healthcare specialists to treat the underlying causes that might be contributing to the mental health symptoms.
The community has a wide range of highly qualified providers with unique specialties in mental health as well as other healthcare fields, all of which can be utilized to provide the consumers with a comprehensive system of care. One of the main obstacles preventing such collaboration is the lack of a consistent, non exclusive forum that is open to all the providers regardless of their specialty.
The purpose of the biannual meeting will be two-fold. First, participants will discuss the current issues that are impacting the community and the local providers at large. Second, healthcare providers will be given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the different services and specialties that are available outside their field.
All healthcare providers, regardless of their specialty or treatment philosophy are invited.
