Resource Type: 

As health care reform proceeds and primary care is transformed, many practices are considering integration of behavioral health services to improve access and quality. In order to work effectively in primary care settings, behavioral health providers must adopt practice patterns and skill sets different from those used in traditional specialty mental health settings. Beyond the challenge of helping providers adapt their skill sets, practices must also address obstacles to reimbursement.


This guide, developed by the National Center, lists and links to resources that can help organizations integrate behavioral health into primary care.
