Advancing Integration of General Health in Behavioral Health Settings a Continuum-Based Framework

There is a need for an organizing model that assists practices and policy-makers to prioritize the steps of integration implementation and the need for both technical assistance and funding for key program elements. In order to advance evidence-based integration of general health care in BH settings, clinics have become intensely interested in the underlying steps they can take to implement and advance specific general health practices.

Based on a targeted literature review and input from diverse stakeholders, the framework presented in this report seeks to provide BH clinics and other organizing entities, such as New York State’s (NYS) Behavioral Health Care Collaboratives (BHCC) and Behavioral Health Independent Practice

Associations (IPA), with practical guidance using a continuum-based road map approach on the intentional and incremental steps to achieve and advance key subdomains of integrated care for community BH clinics.
