Closing the Behavioral Health Integration Gap


On June 12, 2019, PCDC hosted a timely discussion of federal, state, and local perspectives on strategies for integrating primary care into behavioral health settings.

The Summit featured a case study on the East New York Health HUB, a successful co-located integration of the Institute for Community Living and Community Healthcare Network, with a formal published study to follow.

Representatives from the New York State (NYS) Department of Health, the NYS Office of Mental Health, and the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services joined the discussion to highlight integration policy efforts across the state.
