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.
