People without health insurance are less likely to see a primary care provider, less likely to participate in regular health screening, and less likely to have the ability to afford medications. People who live far away from a health care provider and/or in a rural area or lack access to reliable transportation are also less likely to seek routine medical care. Interventions aimed at increasing transportation access to health care services and improving health communication information can help improve overall health and well-being.

Through the Healthy Minds initiative, we foster a collaboration among multiple behavioral health services providers focused on increasing access to integrated behavioral healthcare and strengthening referral networks.
We provide support to the JustTEENS Clinic, a teen-friendly, teen-only clinic, to add behavioral health to list of services – including individual and group therapy and medication management.
