Success with CHWs: Mental Health Services

Reach patients more places

01_ASL1Community Health Workers (CHWs) add value to your practice because they have the ability to carry out their roles “in the field” where your patients live, work, worship, shop and learn.

CHWs work in a wide variety of home and community settings such as:

  • Patient homes
  • Social services agencies and neighborhood centers
  • Mutual assistance associations
  • Affordable housing programs, services for the homeless
  • schools
  • Migrant health services and tribal health services

In these settings, they may help clients access needed services, complete applications to access benefits, and learn about preventive care and how to navigate the healthcare system.
