Journal Entry by Marie Corbin, E.D., Director of Health Services
Dear Mindset Journal,
I would like to acknowledge PHOSBC 's Outcomes & give Kudu's to our entire volunteer team which has successfully contributed to the improvement and well-being for ethnic minority individuals, families, and communities, local and nationally, virtually and in person. As well as collaborating in a "bridging the gap" concept by contributing to the reduction of mental health disparities in communities of color and in the promotion of better mental health access. They have successfully learned how to integrate services with other primary care, mental health providers, organizations, partners and peer support specialists during a global pandemic due to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) with limited funding and resources. Well Done Team!!
Dear Mindset Journal, Part One
Project Heal of Santa Barbara County has always known the value of utilizing the principals from Integrative Medicine, the Arts and in the incorporating specifically from Holistic nursing principles which is defined as “a format of nursing care that integrates the patient’s body, mind and spirit through therapeutic touch, bodywork, reflexology and other manoeuvres” in that helps create our mission driven purpose. As the leaves begin to fall and winter concerns abide one thing is still looming in the public health background that continues to warrant the attention of organizations throughout our county and "dare I say even in our nation..." I would like to explore date related to integrated health, standards of care changes and more a bit more so until next time journal end entry.
Part Two in our next eblast! in November! Stay Tuned...
