Behavioral Health Resources

NCHA has created a resource directory for providers with support from the North Carolina Office of Rural Health, a division of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

Mental health literacy is defined as “knowledge and beliefs about mental disorders which aid their recognition, management or prevention.” These resources focus on helping people develop a working knowledge of mental health. Learn more here.

Hospitals and health systems provide essential behavioral health care services to millions of Americans every day. These resources help better equip frontline health care workers treating patients with mental health conditions. Learn more here.

Violence is a public health problem of epidemic proportion. The danger to health care providers in professional settings escalates as violence moves off the streets and into the medical setting. The key to violence reduction is the early recognition of potential violence by a calm and prepared health care provider. These resources provide guidelines and training to support a safe and secure environment. Learn more here.

Suicide is a major public health concern. Over 40,000 people die by suicide each year in the United States; it is the 10th leading cause of death overall. Suicide is complicated and tragic but it is often preventable. Knowing the warning signs for suicide and how to get help can help save lives. These resources provide education, tools and contacts to support suicide prevention. Learn more here.

For individuals with behavioral health conditions – mental illness and substance abuse – transitions from points of care pose substantial obstacles to successful treatment outcomes. Significant risks include hospital readmissions, care disengagement and symptom exacerbation. These resources provide support for these critical transitions. Learn more here.

People often don’t get the mental health services they need because they don’t know where to start. Use these resources to find help for yourself, your friends, your family or others seeking mental health services. Learn more here.

The opioid epidemic in North Carolina is a crisis that makes no distinction between age, race, sex, wealth, or any other demographic factor. As a result, the problem is affecting our state at every level of care delivery. NCHA has been working to improve care pathways at a hospital and health system level for those suffering with Opiate Use Disorder. The following are a starting place for your hospital to begin aligning your opioid plans with NCHA and the State of North Carolina. Learn more here.

The State of North Carolina has a wide variety of resources available to healthcare providers. Some of these resources include an LME/MCO Directory, a listing of state crisis services programs, and NAMI resources. Learn more here.
