Developing Regional Behavioral Health Care Services Using Primary Care Resources

Project Term: 12 months; Ended 2018
Grant Amount: $50,000

This project was intended to plan for integrating behavioral health services throughout Daniel’s Memorial Healthcare Center’s hospital system. Grant funds were used to assist in planning and developing the scope of service for a self-sustainable clinic model in the rural region they serve (which includes the frontier Scoby community in Eastern Montana). The health center was able to successfully establish standard screening protocols for depression. However, as a result of the planning that took place, the focus of the project shifted, and Daniels Memorial decided to participate in an affiliate grant with Billings Clinic that will assist them in connecting to broader network of hospitals and integrated behavioral health work throughout the region. The Daniels Memorial Healthcare Center’s leadership is committed to implementing integrated behavioral health as part of Billings Clinic network.
