I've learned that mental health issues is such a barrier in caring for dialysis patients of all ages. I don't have much experience with pediatrics but biomarkers significantly improved when the team addresses these issues along with other psychosocial issues. Especially when patients are new it's important to acknowledge the high levels of anxiety that patients experience... great in-service!

Very interesting content. I enjoyed the presentation. So many questions and comment about barriers to addressing the mental health of the patients I provide care for. It will increase my awareness to assess their levels of depression & anxiety.

Very informative! I am from the state of Texas and yes, I understand that we are low on the totem pole for treating mental illnesses and such. What else can we do to advocate for others?

very interesting and informative. Sometimes we forget everyone is human and we need to be looking at more then the outer layer they let us see, some people hide their depression and anxiety well. We as healthcare workers need to be aware and looking for ALL signs

Thank you for providing This type of supportive knowledge. A great number of our patients would benefit from staff that more equipped to not only identify those in need but to be able to give them resources that they can use.
