Integrated Care Toolkit
CBHC is an umbrella entity for multiple community mental health centers in Colorado. The organization partnered with the Colorado State Innovation Model (SIM) office on the Bi-Directional Integration Demonstration and Practice-Based Research Pilot Program, which assessed the value of integrating primary care with community behavioral health services. Four community mental health centers (CMHCs) — Community Reach Center, Jefferson Center, Mental Health Partners, Southeast Health Group — participated in the study.
A Multichannel Approach That Maximizes Impact
In addition to the report and infographic, A-Train developed other materials CBHC and the four centers can use to promote the advantages of mental and physical health care integration. These include large, attention-getting posters summarizing the results for each CMHC and the program overall, email templates and messaging, a landing page, a blog, and a PowerPoint presentation.
