Lots of good questions Nick. I know there are psychologists that specialize in helping people with chronic diseases, and it would be good to more systematically connect people with that kind of care before leaving the hospital. Challenges I see to this are 1) hesitancy/lack of training for medical specialists in treating mental health needs, and 2) resistance of hospital associated psychiatrists (and associated services) to consult on patients without current, hospitalizable mental health needs. I think there may be a way to activate hospital case-workers to address this more systematically, and they may be working in this area already. I wonder if there are any case-worker stakeholders on this site that could give us a better idea what is already occuring on their end.
