American Psychiatric Association Hosts Congressional Briefing on Integrated Care – Collaborative Care Model

* * * MEDIA ADVISORY * * *


Join us to learn about the Collaborative Care Model, how and where it is being implemented across the country, and what policies could support further adoption. Over the past decade, the integration of behavioral health and general medical services has been shown to improve patient access, outcomes, and reduce stigma related to mental health.

More than 80 randomized control trials have identified one model in particular – the Collaborative Care Model – as being effective and efficient in improving patients’ health. Collaborative Care is an evidence-based, multi-disciplinary, team approach to care. Greater federal support is needed to enhance access to effective Collaborative Care.
