Addressing the Impact of Early Experiences on Lifelong Mental Health

Somerville, MA US
May 31, 2019

Eighty percent of health outcomes are determined by factors not traditionally addressed in clinical care. Negative experiences in early development like food insecurity, maltreatment, and exposure to trauma are key determinants for regulatory difficulties (e.g., emotional regulation, impulse control) and other mental health problems (e.g., depression, anxiety, substance use) throughout life. This year’s symposium will explore the far-reaching effects of these early experiences.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for primary care providers and the teams that support them, as well as the Population Health program teams that provide support and services to primary care patients.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Select and use appropriate tools to screen for and diagnose behavioral health problems in both the pediatric and adult populations.
  2. Describe available pharmacological and behavioral treatment options for both the pediatric and adult populations.
  3. Employ and monitor, or refer out to, appropriate treatment across the range of populations seen in primary care.
