How does integrated behavioral health care work?
The goal of the integrated program should be the optimal treatment of clients’ mental and physical health through staff collaboration. Policies and procedures should flow from that principle. Adherence to a particular model or procedure should be strengthened, modified or abandoned depending on how well that goal is being achieved. IBHP is not endorsing any particular model nor method of integrated behavioral care; we are simply summarizing some generally accepted procedural protocols on this website.
