To provide training in management strategies for developing and sustaining behavioral health integration.
Arizona currently ranks 3rd worst in the country for access to mental health treatment. Without the ability to access traditional mental health centers, patients often rely on primary care providers as their singular point to access mental health services. Up to 60% of patients with behavioral health problems are treated solely in primary medicine, while nearly 80% of antidepressant medications are prescribed by primary care providers. One solution for providing better treatment is the integration of behavioral health providers (ie. psychologists, social workers, family therapists, etc.) into the primary care setting.
The ASU Behavioral Health Integration ECHO provides training in management strategies for developing and sustaining behavioral health integration. The curriculum is delivered through case-based learning strategies to your clinic every week via video conferencing technology. Provided at no-cost, community learners within this model will have access to an interdisciplinary healthcare team specialized in behavioral health integration.
Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
