Behavioral Health in Primary Care Settings: Lessons from Research and Quality Management

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
FQHCs, Health Homes and Public Hospitals are often the only means for seeking care among safety-net populations. This session addresses strategies aimed at alleviating the burden of severe mental health symptoms through population-based interventions offered within behavioral health/primary care integrated settings.
Session Objectives: Explain how population-based mental health promotion programs offered at Federally Qualified Health Centers can address social and environmental factors associated with depression and anxiety. Describe the results of preliminary implementation of Health Homes for persons with serious mental illness in New York State. Describe an evidence-based organizational intervention that uses an operations research methodology to avoid creating unnecessary delays in treatment, poor patient outcomes and financial stress for the hospital. Describe changes in mental health screening practices and beliefs following a Quality Improvement Learning collaborative for pediatric primary care providers.
