New Resources Demonstrate Benefits of Collaborative Care
Behavioral health care is needed now more than ever.
Due to the shortage of psychiatrists across the US, many individuals seek mental health care from their primary care providers, many of whom lack the capacity to diagnose, treat and manage mental health conditions due to brief appointment times, inadequate reimbursement rates and the competing demands of preventative care.
Behavioral health integration addresses these challenges and aligns mental and physical health care by bringing qualified mental health specialists directly into the primary care setting. Embedding behavioral health care services into primary health practices via telehealth is an impactful way to treat the whole patient without the burden of co-location.

Behavioral health integration enhances access when and where it’s needed, allowing healthcare organizations to meet mental health needs across the continuum of care.
