We are pleased to announce the publication of the Behavioral Health Integration Implementation Guide and accompanying tools and resources, a new component of the Safety Net Medical Home Initiative’s (SNMHI’s) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) transformation resource library.  Created by the MacColl team and Qualis Health, the SNMHI Behavioral Health Integration resources are free and publicly available.

The Behavioral Health Integration Implementation Guide is a suite of materials to help primary care practices integrate behavioral health care. Included are:

  • An Executive Summary describing behavioral health integration, its role in medical home transformation, and key implementation activities and actions outlined in plain language for a diverse audience. 
  • The Implementation Guide, which offers guidance and practical strategies on behavioral health integration: creating a vision for integrated care, identifying resources to support integration, building integrated care teams, monitoring progress, and spreading and sustaining successes. 
  • The GROW Pathway Planning Worksheet — an interactive tool a practice can use to develop a customized implementation plan that reflects its current resources and future goals.
