Engaged Solutions to Address Socio-Emotional Needs

Engaged Solutions to Address Socio-Emotional Needs

Saint Anthony, a stand-alone safety-net hospital operating in the black, effectively leverages a range of community resources through the Center for Community Wellness (CCW) to engage with two of the most pressing social needs for the residents of Chicago’s west and southwest sides: access to healthcare/mental health services and addressing the impacts of community violence. Over the last two decades, they have developed four community-based programs, offered at no cost, that address community residents’ socio-emotional needs: healthcare navigation, health education, family support, and mental health.

This webinar will demonstrate the value of the CCW as a model to advance health equity by tackling some of the most pressing issues facing Chicago’s high economic hardship communities. The CCW has established community wellness centers in those neighborhoods to provide easily accessible and culturally responsive services for individuals and families across the life span as a method of directly addressing social determinants of health.
