Individuals bring their medical and behavioral health problems with them to both medical care and specialty behavioral healthcare. Efforts to promote primary and behavioral healthcare integration (PBHCI) are taking hold across the country. What is integration and what does it exactly mean for access to mental and substance use services?
This webinar is an essential primer for staff, consumers, and others who need to hear how primary and behavioral healthcare integration is becoming a vital part of the behavioral health system of care. Register and invite others to join us for this special event co-hosted by the National Council and Mental Health America.
