Community Health

The BACH Group believes that biological, psychological, and environmental factors can make people vulnerable to potential mental and/or behavioral health problems.

The BACH Group further believes relationships, community, and society must be collectively taken into consideration when addressing the factors influencing people and communities' behavioral health.

The BACH Group believes there are many factors affecting health in communities. Many of these factors are tied to  a population's environment and their community resources. 

The BACH Group also believes that systematic and institutionalize racism, history, employment, livelihood, and educational attainment are additional  factors that must be examined and dealt with to more effectively change a population's health, within a community.  

The BACH Group, LLC is a social, population, and community capacity support practice dedicated to providing consultative and capacity building services that support improvements in behavioral, community, and population health. BACH is driven by a desire to reduce and support an elimination of disease burden, while increasing self efficacy, wellness, and the well-being of vulnerable people and populations.  

BACH's mission is to improve behavioral and population health efforts, by fostering awareness and/or skill development through interventions, best practices, or policies at the individual or community level.​​​
