Provident’s LaTanya Mackey Discusses Behavioral Health on Expert Panel

News, Views

Provident Clinical Site Supervisor LaTanya Mackey, LPC, NCC, participated in a panel discussion on November 15, hosted by FOCUS St. Louis and United Way of Greater St. Louis. LaTanya spoke about Provident’s services, how we address community needs, and our plans for addressing current gaps in care.

The topic of the panel, “Overall Health, Vitality, and Success of Our Community: Behavioral Health,” grew out of a community needs assessment conducted and released by United Way of Greater St. Louis in early 2020. The results revealed three primary challenges for the 16 counties in our region: Affordable housing, jobs and transportation, and behavioral health.

These discussions are intended to be an in-depth exploration of these issues, with the help of regional leaders and policy experts. This was the second of three panel discussions in collaboration with the United Way and FOCUS St. Louis. You can watch the full panel discussion at this link.
