hello rishi

great work you are doing..don't know if you have many community psychiatrists engaged with health begins, but i am one..  i am in pittsburgh- now an older doc, but long involved in pursuit of health equity by addressing the causes of the causes social determinants/processes of health and building the health opportunity ladder.  (i spent some time in medical school in scotland years ago, when the black report was released- the report that thatcher sequestered..and then later back in the UK when new labor was pursuing health action zones and new deals for neighborhoods- all efforts to address the social elements of health.  meanwhile, in psychiatry, we have a long standing clinical tradition of addressing the social determinants of health in clinical practice- housing, income, nutrition, education, vocation, family, and now primary care- have all been addressed on the community psychiatric team.  there might be some things we have been up to that might be of interest to you? do you know any community psychiatrists??
