This project will allow the grantee to expand integrated behavioral health services into Saint James Medical Group’s primary care practice. This grant will help Saint James meet the tremendous need in the Butte community by developing streamlined strategies to provide the full continuum of care for identified patients with mental illness and substance use disorders and thoroughly train and integrate their clinical teams. Saint James will work with the Butte-Silver Bow County Health Department, Western Montana Mental Health Center, Montana Chemical Dependency Center, and others to define a consistent continuum of care plan to ensure smooth referral of patients from one level of care to another.
