Welcome to the Community Coalition Matrix!
Collaborative work has played a pivotal role in addressing the community health needs of Bexar & Atascosa counties, especially amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The Community Coalition Matrix is a tool that houses real-time data and contact points for existing coalitions and collaboratives that provide health services in our priority areas.
It provides the key ingredients to effectively coordinate a successful cross-sector community health initiative between public health agencies, healthcare providers and community-based organizations.
This tool is designed to assist individuals looking for specific health services, groups looking to form a coalition and existing collaborative initiatives who may be looking to expand and strengthen partnerships.
We hope this tool can serve to connect you to the resources you need. We invite you to reach out if have any questions or suggestions on improving user experience.
Community Health Improvement Plan Priority Health Areas
This indicator focuses on mental health and substance-use and misuse disorders. Mental Illness is prevalent throughout the United States, with almost 20% of the entire adult population (age > 18) in the United States affected. When mental health services are not available and easily accessible, individuals often turn to the Emergency Department for support - this not only further inflates rising healthcare costs, but diverts funds and attention from other emergent patients. Support for behavioral and mental well-being allows individuals to better cope with life-stressors, contribute meaningfully to society and function within their community.
