    URGENT NOTICE!

    People living with serious mental illness die on average 25 years earlier than people in the general population, largely due to cardiovascular diseases like strokes and heart attacks.

    In recent years, behavioral health agencies have taken on responsibility to monitor and support the health status of their clients.

    Case managers in behavioral health agencies form the backbone of efforts to improve the medical outcomes of people living with serious mental illness.

    To support this vital work, HealthierHere partnered with the University of Washington AIMS Center to develop this online course.

    Sisters In common is a HealthierHere Level 1 Community Practice Partner.

    This course is designed to prepare case managers for this work.
