Numerator: Number of counties receiving training, resources, and tools to promote the connection between mental health and physical health
Denominator: Total number of TN counties (n=95)
Significance: There is a synergistic relationship between good mental health and physical health. For example, physical activity promotes healthy weight as well as good mental health. Trusted county professionals and organizations, such as PHEs, health councils, local schools, and youth groups, are a key channel for raising awareness of the connection between mental health and physical health. TDH can support these professionals and groups with evidence-based training, technical assistance, and other resources. Values for this measure will be simple counts derived from program reports and tracking databases that are being developed.
