APRIL 2018
Daylight Savings has past and it is officially spring! Soon flowers will be blooming and the weather will heat up again. Last month, Empowering Minds celebrated Women's History Month at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, and this April we are observing National Minority Health Month. Below you will find pictures from the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, information on National Minority Health Month, information on our Health Home and Families Impacted by Substance Abuse Group, and more agency updates.
Empowering Minds' clients and staff celebrated Women's History Month at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum for their Black Girls Rock! An Evening with Beverly Bond event. Pictures are below.
April is National Minority Health Month, a time to learn more about the health status of racial and ethnic minority populations in the U.S. The theme for 2018 is Partnering for Health Equity which highlights partnerships at the federal, state, local, tribal and territorial levels that help reduce disparities in health and health care. This year, the Office of Minority Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will celebrate impactful public and private sector collaborations that advance health equity and help improve the health of the nation.

Maryland Deparment of Health, Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities, will be hosting a conversation on Building Sustainable Partnerships: Access to Care in Baltimore.

Date: Friday, April 13, 2018
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: 300 West Preston Street (Auditorium), Baltimore, MD 21201

EMRC's Health Home Program provides enhanced and comprehensive care coordination and management services to our Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program clients who are affected by, or at risk for, chronic conditions.

We serve both children and adults with serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI), serious emotional disturbance (SED), opioid substance use disorders, and/or developmental and intellectual disabilities through a whole-person approach that addresses their behavioral, somatic, and social needs; and improves their overall wellness.
