Event Details

There has been an influx of patients seeking mental health care from primary care practices across the country. Individuals with low socioeconomic status are associated with increased risk factors for complex medical and psychiatric co-morbidities, and often have limited access to the healthcare system. Collaborative care, a form of integrated care, is considered an evidence-based approach to better identify, engage, and treat patients with multiple mental health and substance issues in primary care. The collaborative model is patient centered, multidisciplinary, and offers access in integrated care settings to improve overall health outcomes. Hear how the ACE program improved patient outcomes, and the steps for implementing this model in your own practice setting.
