A Guide to Meaningful Roles for Peer Providers in Integrated Healthcare


The mission of Integrated Behavioral Health Partners (IBHP) is to advance and spread integrated behavioral health care in California and nationally through capacity building, training, and technical assistance. We believe we will achieve our mission and improve the health of communities through partnership and collaboration across the safety net health care sectors.

Let us fit the pieces together.

We at IBHP created this virtual library as a resource for those contemplating, planning, or operating treatment programs that integrate behavioral and medical services — so clients don’t have to go to one place for help with their body and another for their mind.

We hope you’ll find the rationales, evidence-based practices and tools you’ll need to set up a successfully integrated program. We’ve also included a snapshot of policies and practices throughout the country to give you a feel for the national landscape.

Launched in 2006 with funding from The California Endowment, IBHP aims to accelerate the integration of behavioral health services within primary care and community clinics throughout California. Starting in 2011, with funding from the California Mental Health Services Authority Stigma and Discrimination Reduction Initiative, IBHP began targeting counties across California and promoting bi-directional integration, which includes providing primary care in behavioral health settings.
