Behavioral Health Integration

Behavioral health and physical health services have long been separated as different treatments for patients, even though the human system is interconnected. Currently, patients seek behavioral health or psychiatric services within a PCP visit because PCPs are screening, educating and breaking down the stigma of behavioral health services. Behavioral health integration (BHI) aims to treat the whole patient. The information below provides current resources to plan, set up and understand the impact and outcomes your patients and care team will experience when utilizing this model.
