Integrated Behavioral Health Implementation Guide

In by Barbara Schott

GUIDEBOOK: This document introduces Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) services and the evidence for using this full integration approach in the primary care setting. It describes the rationales for implementing PCBH services and a brief and practical way to introduce this approach to staff members in the clinic. Additionally, the document describes the roles and responsibilities of all members of a PC team providing PCBH services. While traditional roles continue, there are new skills that Primary Care Providers (PCPs) and nurses (RNs) can develop to use Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs), Behavioral Health Consultant Assistants (BHC-As) and Community Support Workers (SWs) services optimally to achieve improved outcomes.
