Mental and physical health webinar


The Relationship Between Mental Health and Physical Health

September 25, 2018 @ 10am (PST) / 1pm (EST)

Presenters: Deliana Garcia, MA and Javier I. Rosado, PhD

Description:  Mental and physical health are profoundly linked; however, the two are often talked about separately and treated differently. Many common medical problems treated in primary care involve behaviors and health habits that can worsen the condition when left unaddressed. In the United States, medical healthcare professionals provide the vast majority of behavioral health care in primary care settings. As many as 70% of primary care visits are related to behavioral health needs and over 80% of psychotropic medications are prescribed by non-psychiatric medical providers. In this webinar we will discuss common co-morbid physical and mental health conditions that are frequently diagnosed among migrant and seasonal agricultural workers. This presentation will help participants better understand the link between mind, behavior and body. Understanding this link is an important step in identifying strategies to help agricultural workers who are living with chronic physical conditions and who also present with mental health conditions – such as depression and anxiety.
