Collaborative Care ECHO Group 1 – Behavioral Health in Primary Care

Provision of behavioral health services in the primary setting has proven to be an effective means of addressing the universal problem of treatment access for behavioral health disorders. A structured, measurement-based process has been shown to be the most effective way of providing this care. Assistance with the implementation of this modality of care is nearly always necessary, though not always readily available. For providers with a strong interest in implementing a model of behavioral health in primary care settings, the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions is offering this ongoing learning opportunity – Collaborative Care ECHO; Behavioral Health in Primary Care.

Collaborative Care ECHO Group 2 – Primary Care in Behavioral Health

Helping to address the gap in survival of people with serious mental illness (SMI) has become a task for the behavioral health agency. A structured, measurement-based, team-based process has been shown to be the most effective way of providing this care. Assistance with the implementation of this new modality of care is nearly always necessary, though not always readily available. For providers with a strong interest in implementing support for physical health for their clients living with SMI, the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions is offering an ongoing learning opportunity – Collaborative Care ECHO; Primary Care in Behavioral Health.

Lead: National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD)

The Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions has partnered with the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) to develop a six-month learning collaborative to assist Single State Agencies (SSAs) for alcohol and other drug services and their primary care partners in advancing integration efforts between specialty substance use and primary care systems. The learning collaborative will focus on integration with Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). This learning collaborative will run from January- July 2020. States who participate will have the opportunity to connect with both their own multi-disciplinary team, and teams from other states, participate in knowledge-building sessions, and receive individual coaching to advance their integration efforts. At the end of the collaborative, teams will have a plan to advance integration in their state.
