Season 3: The Long Road to Health Equity
Season 3 explores the complex topic of health equity. Health equity is achieved when every person has an equal opportunity to attain their full health potential. Behavioral Health Equity is the right to access quality health care for all populations regardless of the individual’s race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or geographical location. This includes access to prevention, treatment, and recovery services for mental and substance use disorders. Health and behavioral health inequities impact length of life; quality of life; rates of disease, disability, and death; severity of disease and access to treatment. This season, we’ll learn from clinicians, researchers, authors, and leaders who share important insights regarding how to achieve health equity.
