New Report Highlights PA Focus on Mental Health

September 4, 2019

As a follow-up to their June meeting, the PArtners in Mental Health Initiative Steering Committee has released a new report highlighting work by each of the partner organizations, the state of the mental health field, and possibilities for future work. 

The steering committee is comprised of staff from the six largest PA organizations (AAPA, ARC-PA, NCCPA, the nccPA Health Foundation, the PA Foundation, and PAEA), as well as other interprofessional leaders. Ultimately, the group’s goal is to “effect systemic change that improves the nation’s health by advancing the roles of PAs and strengthening partnerships to address issues impacting mental health and substance use disorders.”
