May is National Mental Health Month, a time to recognize the importance of preventing and treating mental illnesses. In recognition, this issue of QIO News looks at how the QIO Program and its national and community partners are working to increase access to mental and behavioral health services for beneficiaries. We also explore how improvements to long-term care have had a positive impact on older adults’ mental and physical health.
