Integration of Primary Care and Behavioral Health

Behavioral health conditions are frequently undiagnosed and untreated. While primary care can play a pivotal role in improving access to behavioral health services, increased understanding of the scope of the problem, the role of primary care, and practical strategies for integration are necessary to close the care gap. This session will emphasize the need for behavioral health services in primary care as well as the training, mentoring, professional support and resources available to primary care providers, and will also provide real life examples of how clinicians have integrated these services and resources into their practices.
