2016 Rosalynn Carter Symposium on Mental Health Policy Pt 4/5 (Carter Center)

Topic: "Widening the Circle of Health and Wellness: The Central Role of Behavioral Health"

Building on The Carter Center’s leadership in the mental health field, this year’s symposium addresses an emerging issue: the central role of behavioral health and wellness in managing the overall health and wellness of defined populations including organizations, communities, or another defined group. Currently, the strategic focus of health care policy is transitioning away from the management of illnesses in individuals towards the management of health within defined populations. And behavioral health and wellness are essential to the success of such initiatives.
