General Health Services

The concept of general health is built on integrating preventive screenings, education and support. General health programs provide people with substance use disorders and mental illness with preventive healthcare services they typically would not access. For example, heart disease and stroke screenings are crucial, because this population is at greater risk of mortality associated with cardiovascular disease. General health services vary by the type of clinic, but often include:

– Anemia testing
– Cholesterol screenings
– Diabetes screenings
– High blood pressure screenings
– Thyroid screenings
– Physical exams
– Flu vaccines
– Tetanus vaccines
– Smoking cessation support

Fact and Stats Supporting General Health Services

– Mental health clients have a higher prevalence of metabolic syndrome, liver diseases, hypertension and dental disorders
– Medications, especially atypical antipsychotic drugs can cause weight gain, elevated cholesterol and glucose metabolism
– Mental health clients have high rates of smoking, poor weight management/nutrition and physical inactivity
– Mental health clients have the lowest rates of preventive medicine and self-care utilization

Education and Support

General health training programs or modules provide concise guidelines to primary care providers on how to conduct screenings, brief assessments, brief interventions, in-depth assessments, referrals, specialized treatment and follow-up care – including assessment tools specific to alcohol abuse and drug abuse. Providing education and support tools to clinicians enables them to help individuals with co-occurring substance use disorders, mental health disorders and a variety of medical conditions. Providing non-judgmental information and education about alcohol and other drugs is an integral component of general health services. A primary provider helps teach individuals how alcohol or drug use can affect physical health, including how these substances interact with medications they may be taking. The primary care provider can also help clients quit or reduce tobacco use.

The ultimate goal of general health services is to enable a future in which people with mental and substance use disorders achieve optimal health, happiness and recovery; and live a full and satisfying life in the community made possible by access to a range of effective services, supports and resources.
