Traditional medical and psychiatric health care represents only a modest portion of an individual’s overall health and wellness. It is increasingly recognized that community factors and other social determinants of health, including housing, transportation, food security, employment and social connectedness, play a significant role in health, wellness and recovery.

At the 26th Annual STEP Symposium titled "Social Determinants of Mental Health and Recovery", presentations will focus on the importance of the community in maintaining health and wellness and in supporting recovery. Discussions will explore how healthcare systems are approaching social determinants of health and how communities can support the health, wellness and recovery of individuals living with mental illness. Presentations at the symposium are: "Life in the Community Like Everyone Else: Community Inclusion as a Medical Necessity" - Mark Salzer, PhD; "The Role of Hot Spotter Models in the Evolving World of Population Health" - Brian Klausner, MD; "HomeLink: Improving Housing and Housing Stability Outcomes Among Individuals Experiencing Mental Illness" - Janice Bainbridge, LCSW, Antoine Bailliard, PhD, OTR/L; Panel Discussion: "What Can the Community Do to Support Community Inclusion".
