Behavioral Health Integration Fundamentals: Concepts & Models

Join the California Quality Collaborative (CQC) on Tuesday, June 13 from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. PT for a Resilient Primary Care webinar, Behavioral Health Integration Fundamentals: Concepts and Models.

Integrating behavioral health into primary care is essential for providers looking to deliver patient-centered, high-quality and whole-person care. Yet many health care organizations struggle with knowing where to begin.

Primary care practices and provider organizations at the beginning of their integration journey should join to review the core concepts around behavioral health integration, how to select an integration model and useful tools and resources to support integration. We’ll hear from experts at the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association, a member association whose goal is to make integrated care the standard of care across the United States and beyond, as well as updates from CQC’s CalHIVE Behavioral Health Integration improvement collaborative, including how participating organizations will get ready to launch their integration pilots.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Hear how CQC’s upcoming improvement collaborative, CalHIVE Behavioral Health Integration, is supporting integration, and learn more how participating organizations are preparing
  • Compare the models for integrating behavioral health into primary care
  • Analyze local factors to support selecting an integration model
