Suicide Awareness, Education and Prevention 

Peach State Health Plan values our members and their mental health & wellness. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) 1 in 5 Americans have a diagnosable mental illness. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention reports suicide is the 12th leading cause of death in the United States. Suicide and suicidal behavior among youth and young adults is a major public health crisis. The National Council for Mental Wellbeing reports suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among young people 10-24 years of age in the United States (US), and rates have been rising for decades. When more people are equipped with the tools they need to start a dialogue, more people can get the help they need.

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Peach State Health Plan provides integrated quality physical and behavioral health services to our members. Our integrated services strive to address the whole person and ensure our members have quality of life and better health outcomes. Peach State Health Plan’s approach to behavioral health treatment stems from a system of care perspective. We strive to support the children, youth, adults, and families we service by providing community based, culturally competent, evidenced based care in the least restrictive environment.
