On Why the U.S. Has a Sick Care System Not a Health Care System: Underuse of prevention and early intervention

I'll be drawing on more of Dale Jarvis' presentation to Kitsap Mental Health employees recently than just the few slides in this set, but this is good for starters. Note that, according his analysis, adverse childhood experiences are at the root of the following problems.
  1. disrupted neurodevelopment,
  2. social emotional and conigitive impairment,
  3. adoption of health-risk behaviors,
  4. disease, disability and social problems,
  5. and early death.
He teaches that spiritual health is conducive to physical health, but physical health depends upon many factors, some of which are outside the control of the individual.
