The first day of National Public Health Week is focused on behavioral health.  Winneshiek County Public Health staff  work with psychiatrists and physicians from Northeast Iowa Behavioral Health, Gundersen Clinics and Winneshiek Medical Center to provide  assistance to individuals who may have a mental health diagnosis.  Our staff can set up medications and administer injections per doctor orders for individuals who need additional services to maintain them in the community.  We encourage people who may be experiencing mental illness, to seek treatment.  It’s important for communities to de-stigmatize mental health diagnosis.

 

Come back on Tuesday to learn about Communicable Disease!
