A Whole Health Story Addressing the Whole-Health Effects of Climate Change
September 19, 2022
As part of our whole-health approach, which encompasses health factors outside of the doctor’s office, Elevance Health works to alleviate the effects of climate change on health. The healthcare sector must lead efforts to address climate change, which over 200 medical journals have declared the “greatest threat” to global public health. Climate change impacts critical physical, behavioral, and social drivers, such as mental health conditions and food security. Disruptions to ecological systems and changes in weather can worsen chronic health conditions and lead to increased prevalence of conditions like asthma, cardiovascular failure, and infectious disease.

A Community Health Story Health Equity Programs for Employees and Communities: A Playbook
September 2022
Saying your community embraces equity is one thing, but what is equity strategy in action? In Northeast Indianapolis, working with local businesses to build a manufacturing facility that provides jobs and educational opportunities is just the start. Equity becomes a part of the picture when that company works with the community to build a grocery store next door, when there hasn’t been one in miles.

Whole Health and What Drives It

We are taking a holistic view that can transform health. It’s one that considers not just traditional physical factors, but behavioral and social factors too. This makes it clear that health is the result of our daily experiences and circumstances, from what we eat and where we live to our place of employment and how we get to work. When we consider the whole person, and the factors that influence their health, we can make lasting positive change.

A Whole Health Story

Improving Preventive Behavioral Health to Avoid a Crisis

As the health system evolves to a whole-health approach, prevention of illness and a focus on overall well-being becomes ever more prominent. This shift in focus may be most noticeable and most needed in behavioral health. It’s far too common for people to reach a behavioral health crisis before getting the support and treatment they need.

A preventive mental health and substance use approach requires two fundamental shifts in public sentiment. The first is toward widespread acceptance that behavioral health is health. The second is to decrease negative stereotypes around seeking diagnosis and treatment.

Understanding the physical, behavioral, and social drivers of behavioral health conditions can illuminate the best path forward for each person.
