More than half of all Americans living with diagnosable mental health or addiction problems do not receive care for their problems in any given year. Collaborative Care is an evidence- based approach for mental health professionals to reach and help patients with common mental health problems through partnering with primary care practitioners who often encounter patients with such problems in their offices.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:

  1. Recognize the lack of access to mental health services.
  2. Explain the core principles of evidence-based collaborative care models.
  3. Identify the core components of effective collaborative care programs.
