Integrating Medical Care Into A Mental Health Facility
This planning grant supported early work to integrate physical and behavioral health services in Lewis and Clark County’s mental health center, crisis center, and community health center. The applicant and partners participated in technical assistance, webinars, and learning communities led by the National Council for Behavioral Health. The project strengthened partnerships and provided clarity and direction for how each partner could work toward more effectively integrated services in the future. The project did not fully realize its aim of integrating services, however, program partners were successful in utilizing a shared referral software system.
