Momentum has been gaining for the integration of behavioral health into primary care settings but much less attention has been paid to the integration of primary care into behavioral health settings. The rationale for integrating in this direction is clear:
  • Patients feel more comfortable in this setting;
  • Staff have the skills and expertise to work with this population;
  • There is growing evidence of the direct interplay between behavioral health conditions, treatments, and other physical health issues.

Providers are faced with a dizzying array of models, literature, and methods of integrating care. It is challenging to know what to do and where to begin. The Center for Evidence Based Practices (CEBP) at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, partnered with Shawnee Mental Health Center (SMHC) to implement integrated treatment as part of SAMHSA's first wave of PBHCI grants. This session will present one aspect of the implementation process—planning and developing Integrated Treatment. The CEBP, in collaboration with Shawnee, developed the Integrated Treatment Tool to evaluate the presence and extent of an adaptation to the Person-Centered Healthcare Home model that integrates primary and behavioral healthcare services. It was designed to be used for planning, readiness, and implementation process monitoring. The goals of this approach are to increase health outcomes, improve quality of life, and decrease fragmentation of care.
