• Behavioral Health Integration On Demand

    Online CME

    As the mental health crisis continues, family physicians remain the first point of care for many patients. Recent statistics show:

    • Up to 75% of primary care visits include mental or behavioral components
    • 14 million+ American children and teens have a diagnosable mental health disorder
    • Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for people ages 10-24

    Integrated care is associated with improved outcomes in the treatment of depression and anxiety, and physicians report integrated care decreases their own personal stress level and improves the care provided by their practice.

    This course offers seven videos focused on ways to successfully integrate behavioral health screening and treatment for better patient outcomes. Topics include: 

    • Case studies on collaborative care and primary care behavioral health models
    • Utilizing community resources
    • Building and leading your care team
