When asked why is mental health education important to him, Matt said, “Mental health education is the first step in changing behavior. This is the starting point for improving outcomes and the overall health & wellness of those impacted. Healthcare is increasingly more costly, with unmet mental health needs a key factor. Prevention and well-being can drastically improve individual health and reduce costs, but first requires substantial behavior change enabled by effective education”.
