For this project, RiverStone Health successfully completed a business feasibility plan for expanding its scope of service to provide integrated psychiatric services. The feasibility plan also examined opportunities for RiverStone to serve as an integrated behavioral health rotation site for students in psychiatric nurse practitioner training programs, psychiatry residency programs, and Master of Social Worker students. As a result of the planning, the project was able to successfully formalize an integrated behavioral health training program. Additionally, a community coalition of behavioral health providers was established in Billings and continues to meet to network and share critical information among programs.
