Collaborative care is an evidence-based model of integrated mental health in primary care settings that shows clear and significant effectiveness for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Widespread implementation of Collaborative Care is now occurring across the country to answer the need for increased access for mental health treatment. Concurrently, there is a growing need for the treatment of substance use disorders, which often present in the primary care setting where they have traditionally been inadequately addressed.
Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 5U79TI026556-03 from SAMHSA.
