Recently, there has been increasing momentum towards providing resources and services to improve physical and mental health, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the events in Afghanistan, and the social determinants of health (SDH)—the non-medical factors that influence health outcomes. These conditions are influencing and shaping daily life, including social norms, mental health, suicide risk factors, economic policies, political systems and social policies.
A more flexible, responsive effort is needed to respond to the surge of requests that these recent events have caused. With September marking Suicide Prevention Month, it’s critical that we address how to break down stigma, come together as a community, and utilize telehealth to improve physical and mental health outcomes.
