Grants to qualified USA mental health providers to improve the physical health of individuals diagnosed with serious mental illnesses and those who have co-occurring substance abuse issues. Of particular priority is providing services to racial and ethnic minorities in order to increase access, use of services, and improve outcomes.

Specifically, grantees will establish projects for the provision of coordinated and integrated services through the co-location of primary and specialty care medical services in community-based behavioral health settings. The goal is to improve the physical health status of adults with serious mental illnesses (SMI) and those with co-occurring substance use disorders who have or are at risk for co-morbid primary care conditions and chronic diseases. The program’s objective is to support the triple aim of improving the health of individuals with SMI; enhancing the consumer experience of care (including quality, access, and reliability); and reducing/controlling the per capita cost of care.

The PBHCI grant program seeks to address behavioral health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities by encouraging the implementation of strategies to decrease the differences in access, service use and outcomes among the racial and ethnic minority populations served.

SAMHSA expects grantees to establish projects for the provision of coordinated and integrated services through the co-location of primary and specialty care medical services in community-based behavioral health settings, with the following core requirements:
- Provide, by qualified primary care professionals, on site primary care services.
- Provide, by qualified specialty care professionals or other coordinators of care, medically necessary referrals and linkages to primary care services.

There are various effective approaches to co-location of primary and behavioral health care services. The most important aspect of co-location is the integration of behavioral health and primary care services. Integrated services should be tailored to meet the needs of the population served with consideration of other realities such as geographic location, space availability, and cost feasibility. Integrated services should be provided in a manner that is coordinated, accessible and seamless to best suit the needs of the client.

SAMHSA believes that only existing, experienced, and appropriately credentialed organizations with demonstrated infrastructure and expertise will be able to provide required services quickly and effectively. You must meet three additional requirements related to the provision of services.

The three requirements are:

- A provider organization for direct client mental health services appropriate to the grant must be involved in the proposed project. The provider may be the applicant or another organization committed to the project. More than one provider organization may be involved;

- Each treatment provider (including partnering primary care) organization must have at least 2 years’ experience (as of the due date of the application) providing relevant services in the geographic area(s) in which services are to be provided (official documents must establish that the organization has provided relevant services for the last 2 years); and

- Each treatment provider (including partnering primary care) organization must comply with all applicable local (city, county) and state licensing, accreditation and certification requirements, as of the due date of the application.

[Note: The above requirements apply to all service provider organizations. A license from an individual clinician will not be accepted in lieu of a provider organization’s license. Eligible tribes and tribal organization mental health/substance abuse treatment providers must comply with all applicable tribal licensing, accreditation, and certification requirements, as of the due date of the application.]

The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies.
