This planning grant with Community Hospital of Anaconda (CHA) solidified organization support, understanding, and commitment to integrated behavioral health implementation. CHA also successfully standardized screening for depression for all their patients and developed care pathways for depression treatment. Depression screening went from 0% at the start of the project to 40% by the end, with a commitment to fully systematize screening for depression. They began developing an understanding of substance use disorder screening and treatment which they plan to begin when they implement their integrated system. CHA has organizational commitment to fully implement integrated behavioral health in the primary care and perinatal programs and will be invited to apply for implementation grants through these MHCF initiatives.
