Resource Center

Browse resources to advance and support integration of behavioral health services and primary care, including integrated care models, practice briefs, evidence reviews, toolkits, clinical guidelines and more.

This collection includes non-federal resources in order to provide additional information to users. The views and content in these resources have not been formally approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), or the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Listing these resources is not an endorsement by HHS or HRSA.

The COE for BHTA website will be accessible through December 3rd. 2020. You can still access resources for integrated behavioral health via the Resource Center until then. We encourage you to visit the HRSA Behavioral Health webpage for available resources and support.
