Mental Health Resource Hub: 4 More States Broaden Access to Boosters for Adults

By expanding its toolkit for mental health providers to expand access to social development and drug-based screenings and other tools, the Partnership for Mentally Ill Children and Adults is announcing 4 More States Broaden Access to Boosters for Adults. This is a program that helps providers of mental health and substance use care assist their patients in accessing psychosocial interventions that are related to diagnoses and symptoms related to other conditions. The goal is to make it easy for providers to refer patients to these screening tools.

“I see this program as a way to improve access to tools used by all our clinicians. Providers often turn patients away from screening tools because they lack information on how to use them. This becomes an issue for the children with mental health or substance use conditions and their families too, when they try to access a service that is related to their diagnosis and symptoms. This is especially so for those children who face barriers to getting out of homelessness and/or family abuse. Each social development assessment test is associated with a significant reduction in symptoms for many individuals. The results of these assessments should be part of the continuum of care and support. Providers who are already doing effective work in supporting patients with mental health and substance use conditions need resources and tools to make these assessments a little easier.” — Joe Quattrone, MD, Director of Outpatient Services at Huntington Hospital, New York
