Mental Health America to host June 17th webinar with HealthyWomen and NMQF on the unique connection between mental health and chronic pain conditions.
The mental health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are as essential to address as the physical health effects. As the number of COVID-19 cases increases, so does the associated anxiety and stress. The health challenges presented to individuals with a mental health condition during COVID-19 are only exacerbated for those who are also living with chronic pain. But all too often, we don’t talk about mental health and chronic pain in the same conversations.
On June 17th, Mental Health America (MHA) will host an educational webinar, Addressing the Connection Between Mental Health & Chronic Pain to Improve Patient Outcomes, on the importance of creating an open dialogue and promoting resources to support those living with both a mental health condition and chronic pain.
Webinar attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the resources that are available to individuals who are seeking support, and how personal, professional, and policy measures can help better address the unique needs of individuals who are living with both a mental health condition and chronic pain.
During the webinar, MHA will unveil new data on the unique connection between mental health and chronic pain conditions and invite panelists to provide a clinical and health equity perspective on mental health and pain management.
