MNHC Winter Newsletter 2020
More than one-quarter of adults in the U.S. experience some type of behavioral health disorder in a given year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While 29% of adults with a medical condition also have some type of mental health disorder, close to 70% of behavioral health patients also have a medical condition.
Understanding this connection, MNHC has a behavioral health program at each of its sites to address the behavioral health needs of its patients. This year, MNHC hired Silvia Sandoval, LCSW, to serve as Behavioral Health Director. Originally from Guatemala, Silvia moved here from the East Coast in 2015. She has been practicing professionally for the last 20 years, mostly in community non-profit organizations serving marginalized and disenfranchised populations.
