Mental Health Awareness Ongoing Initiative for Kaiser Permanente


As Mental Health Awareness Month comes to a close, Kaiser Permanente is committed to bringing awareness to mental health and celebrating Mental Health Awareness every day of the year. Listen to the recent podcast in which Celeste James, director of Community Benefit at Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States and Amit Patel, MD, service Chief and Psychiatrist for Kaiser Permanente’s Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group discuss the importance of mental health awareness, and give a first-hand account of how Kaiser Permanente is working to transform the delivery of health care to underserved people in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia.

Kaiser Permanente also launched a public health awareness effort called “Find Your Words” last fall to help tackle the stigma around mental health and encourage people to talk about it openly. Read more about it here or visit to learn more.
