Developing the Behavioral Health Workforce in Merced County, California

Location

California

Organization

Mercy Medical Center Merced

Mercy Medical Center Merced, an organization of Dignity Health, will conduct an HIA to explore the connections between the county’s behavioral health workforce and health outcomes tied to poverty, employment, and substance use. A lack of adequate substance use disorder services, for example, may affect residents’ ability to maintain stable employment, health care, and other factors that determine quality of life.

Through screening, Mercy Medical Center Merced and partners will identify a decision to evaluate for the HIA, with a focus on how the county budget and/or the center’s investments could affect health outcomes.
