10 by 10 Wellness Campaign: Information For General Health Care Providers

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

Abstract

The 10x10 Wellness Campaign launched its free brochures and posters for clinicians, community organizations, consumers/survivors and peers who want to take action to improve the life expectancy of people with behavioral health challenges by 10 years in the next 10 years. The campaign encourages clinicians to provide consumer-centered care to people with mental illness. It provides facts about mental disorders, lists the eight dimensions of wellness, and includes tips for providing care and making connections with a patient's mental health provider. These consumer-centered tools establish a shared language for talking about how wellness can support recovery for individuals with behavioral health challenges. The new resources include: two posters; informational brochure for primary care providers that provides strategies for talking about wellness and connecting with patients’ behavioral health care providers; motivational brochure for consumers/survivors/peers; and an informational brochure to raise awareness about the disparity in early mortality for people with behavioral health problems.
