TA Resources: Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care

May 12, 2017 | Kim Rodgers

The Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS), operated by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and Health Resources and Service Administration (SAMHSA-HRSA), has resources to help Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) recipients address all aspects of integration including models of integrated care, workforce, financing, clinical practice, operations/administration, and health/wellness. In addition, CIHS has content experts available to work with HRSA-funded HIV providers to answer questions related to integrating behavioral health and primary care.

HIV provider organizations see individuals at risk for or living with a substance use and/or mental health issues. The CIHS can answer questions, including how to organize clinical practice to provide effective care for people living with HIV who have a behavioral health concern or how to enhance the system of care already in place. Consultations can help RWHAP recipients:

  • Learn more about integration and how it can positively impact client outcomes;
  • Determine how to best include behavioral health screenings as part of HIV programs;
  • Understand the intersection of comprehensive HIV care and behavioral health integration;
  • Determine training needs of an integrated care team; and
  • Learn about tools and practical resources that can help organizations build and sustain integration.

In addition, the CIHS has developed practical technical assistance materials, including The Case for Behavioral Health Screening is HIV Care Settings and The Quick Start Guide to Behavioral Health Integration.

Access these resources and learn more about the SAMHSA-HRSA CIHS.
