MultiCare's mobile (and personal) approach to mental health care
Tim Holmes, Vice President of Outreach Services for MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital, visited "New Day Northwest" on KING 5 TV to talk about how the hospital's innovative mobile outreach program is reaching people with mental illness who don't seek regular medical treatment. (See the video below.)
From KING 5's "New Day Northwest":
Many people who live with mental illness don't seek regular treatment, often because of financial limitations and the stigma of their condition. In turn, they're at a higher risk for suffering from other chronic health problems. One health care group is taking the doctor's office to the people who need it most.
MultiCare's Good Samaritan Hospital goes mobile, to help more people receive the medical and mental heath treatment they need, even if they can't (or won't) go to a hospital. Tim Holmes, Vice President of Outreach Services for Good Samaritan, shared some of their inspirational work.
