Better Together We Can

 

As part of our focus on whole person Wellness, SCCMHA has introduced a campaign entitled, Better Together We Can...  

The name Better Together for this campaign was  chosen because chronic physical health conditions affect individuals regardless of age, ethnicity or socioeconomic background. This program will not only benefit the individuals we servebut also our workforce here at SCCMHA and in our provider network. Better together, we can improve our wellness.

One focus of this campaign is blood pressure management. Why blood pressure management? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 70 million American adults (29%) have high blood pressure—that’s 1 of every 3 adults.  SCCMHA will offer a Learn Together Series that will cover this important topic and will also offer drop-in
blood pressure clinics.

Better Together We Can activities are approved for Better Together Bank hours. Learning Links are approved, too!

Quarterly Drop-in blood pressure clinics services will include the following:

  • Individuals in the SCCMHA workforce and provider network will be able to have a quick, confidential blood pressure screening.
  • Individuals we serve will receive the following Wellness services:
  • Blood pressure screening
  • Education from a multidisciplinary team
  • Medication management
  • Appropriate meal planning
  • Motivational interviewing

The locations of both the Learn Together Series and blood pressure drop-in clinics will vary.
