The Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions (CoE-IHS) is committed to advancing treatment for co-occurring physical and mental health conditions, including substance use disorders.
Coordinating general health, mental health and substance use treatment through a patient-centered, team-based approach benefits the people being served, their caregivers and their providers and is the core focus of integrated health.
People with mental health and substance use challenges have shorter life expectancy than the general population — due largely to untreated and preventable chronic illness exacerbated by health disparities and health inequity. We drive policy, social and practice changes that use integrated health as a proven solution to closing the mortality gap and expanding access to comprehensive, coordinated care.
Our work spans a broad array of methods to improve integrated care delivery, including expanding workforce capacity and driving practice transformation. Leveraging the field’s top experts, we lead the design and delivery of capacity-building research, resources and tools to advance integrated health as a standard approach to care.
