Name of Show:  Let’s Rethink This 

Episode title and number: Episode 004 Systemic Approaches to Behavioral Health 

Brief summary of show:  Today, I am talking with Behavioral Health Network of Greater St. Louis (BHN) and we have three great guests on the show. Sally Haywood is the Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives, Rose Jackson-Beavers is the Director of Faith Initiatives, and Christie Becker-Markovich is the Director of Recovery Initiatives.  BHN is committed to improving the overall system of care and support, helping people with behavioral health needs get the help they need when and where they need it. This ensures that people get treatment before their illnesses become more serious, more complex, and more difficult and costly to treat. All three of these women work at approaching systemic change and improvement to the behavioral health system in and with different spaces in the community.
