Target Audience:  Mental and Behavioral Health Professionals​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Practice Category:  Intermediate 

Overview:   The Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) Model is a rapidly expanding model of integrating behavioral health care into the medical environment. In this model, behavioral health providers provide clinical consultative services as part of the multidisciplinary primary care team to help address psychological conditions, substance use concerns, and barriers toward health and wellness. The PCBH approach focuses on the triple aim of helping to provide better patient experiences, better population health, and lower cost, often in an open-access, immediate manner. This presentation will describe the PCBH model, explain how it works in the clinical setting, and provide information on its effectiveness.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the behavioral health care gaps that exist in primary care 
  2. Identify five models where integrated behavioral health care is delivered in primary care
  3. Discuss how a Behavioral Health Consultant functions within a primary care clinic
