Integrated behavioral health is combining behavioral health with primary care. If your mental health is not operating at the highest level, your physical health will not be operating at the highest level and vice versa.
Integrated Behavioral Healthcare is an emerging field within the wider practice of high-quality, coordinated health care. In the broadest use of the term, “integrated behavioral health care” can describe any situation in which behavioral health and medical providers work together.
The care a patient experiences as a result of a team of primary care and behavioral health clinicians, working together with patients and families, using a systematic and cost-effective approach to provide patient-centered care for a defined population.
