Investment in programming offering emergency mental health services to young adults impacted by severe mental health issues and substance abuse.
People with serious mental illness die on average, 25 years younger than their peer group - mostly from untreated and preventable health conditions. Mental illness itself impacts one’s thought processes and ability to problem-solve. This, coupled with the challenges of navigating a complex and fragmented healthcare system, poverty, trauma, homelessness and stigma so often experienced by those with mental illness, all contribute to disability, early death and disproportionately high cost for care. Crossroads to Health and Recovery is a first of its kind program in Omaha providing an integrated physical and behavioral health approach specifically for adults with serious mental illness.
