“I am passionate about educating providers and patients about the connection between physical and mental health. As the need for behavioral health services continues to grow, it is imperative that healthcare systems put the right resources in lace to make it easier for people to understand and access the care services that are available to them. Beebe is committed to doing exactly that.
