Social Determinants of Health 101: Exploring the Four Dimensions of Recovery
Overview

Description 

The importance of the social determinants of health on overall health outcomes is well-documented, yet they are often overlooked in professional support systems. This 12-week course examines the impact of social and economic conditions on health outcomes within the framework of SAMHSA’s four dimensions of recovery: health, home, purpose, and community. The role of the social determinants of health in experiences of those who have received services will be emphasized. Clinicians and non-clinicians will examine the social determinants of health to better address these critical aspects of recovery in their practice and reduce structural barriers to care. 

By the end of this course, you will be able to: identify the social determinants of health and their importance in health outcomes and health equity, utilize your knowledge to support the four dimensions of recovery for individuals living with a serious mental condition and apply what you have learned to reduce disparities in access and outcomes in your practice.
