Project Term: 12 months; 2018-2019
Grant Amount: $49,729
To date, Glacier Community Health Center has successfully linked behavioral health with medical, providing bidirectional warm hand-offs of patients who need the alternate department’s services, and thus improving patient care and health outcomes. This project will focus on a similar integration between behavioral health and dental with the addition of medical, with the knowledge that dental, medical and behavioral health diagnoses are often linked, and common solutions can often be found. Funds for this project will be used for staff time to work through the needed policies, procedures, and workflow for the integration of dental and behavioral health services.
