Center of Excellence for Integrated Care
Too often, services for physical and behavioral health are poorly coordinated, leading to a lack of appropriate care for those suffering from mental illness and substance abuse. This lack of collaboration means primary care providers often must try to address unmet behavioral health needs with insufficient specialty back-up and information.
For more than a decade, FHLI’s Center of Excellence for Integrated Care has been assisting clinics and health systems address this need by providing evidence-based approaches customized to fit local needs, as well as resources for assessment, training, and technical assistance.
Currently, the team works with more than 30 sites and programs, such as primary care offices, clinics and hospitals, community collaboratives, school-based health centers, and local government organizations.
