Dr. Marvin Southard, Director LA County DMH and Dr. Ron Manderscheid talk “Bridge to Health Reform”

What is “Living in the Moment” all about?  Can we think ourselves sick?  Can we think ourselves better?  And what is “Spirituality and Mindfulness?”  Dr. David Pating has the answers and some great tips for daily living!  We went on location at the 9th Statewide Conference Integrating Substance Use, Mental Health and Primary Care Services — a Bridge to Health Reform.  What is being done?  How much progress has been made, and what do people need to know.  LA County DMH Public Affairs Director Kathleen Piche joins us in studio as we hear from Dr. Marvin J. Southard and Dr. Ron Manderscheid, PhD, National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability Directors.  The conference was a huge success and was kicked off by Dr. Manderscheid’s keynote address!  Prop, 63 funding, LAC DMH, CIMH and Pacific Southwest ATTC helped to put on this sold out and standing room only event.
