Healthy Communities

Nine out of 10 people with mental health
problems say that stigma and discrimination
have a negative effect on their lives. To
help reduce the stigma surrounding mental
health, LOHF has funded and supported
educational trainings in Lancaster County, including " Mental Health First Aid, "
" Question, Persuade, Refer " (for suicide
prevention), and " Understanding Trauma,
Resilience and Trauma Informed Care "
training to help Lancaster County become
a trauma-informed community.
Examples of improving access are often
best illustrated when we remove barriers,
such as language, transportation, internet
access, cost, hours of operation, or access
to health insurance. We also improve access
by collaborating across agencies and organizations and between systems of care so that
services are streamlined, medical records are
shared with patient permission, and new
clinics are opened in schools.

For many years, LOHF has funded grants
to increase access. Grant funding supports
programs in schools to teach children mental health strategies, to conduct depression
and anxiety screenings of teens, to embed
mental health training into curricula for
domestic abuse victims, and to provide
programs for early childhood educators. It
also supports immigrant and refugee services
and foster care programs. These grants are
expanding access to mental health care by
training and engaging a broader network
of community services in identifying and
supporting children and families in Lancaster County.
Since 2017, LOHF has also managed the
Mental Health Copay Assistance Program,
which was previously run by Project Access
Lancaster County (PALCO). With copay
assistance, parents and families can apply to
qualify, and LOHF reimburses the mental
health provider at the Medicaid rate so that
the patient only pays $10 copay per visit.
