Integrated Behavioral Healthcare Conference
Integrated Behavioral Healthcare Conference: Evidence Based Practices & Innovations
To better achieve whole-person care and reduce fragmentation across the medical-mental health divide, this conference is for clinicians, administrators, and staff involved or interested in bringing behavioral health expertise into general medical care.
Integrated Behavioral Healthcare: Evidence Based Practices & Innovations is a one-day interactive conference which will include plenary presentations, question-and-discussion periods, and break-out sessions on a variety of relevant topics. Course content and delivery is designed to help participants develop practical strategies and valuable networks while pursuing a plan for behavioral health integration.
This conference brings together a diverse audience of clinicians, administrators, and staff involved or interested in bringing behavioral health expertise into general medical care—to better achieve whole-person care and reduce fragmentation across the medical-mental health divide.
While it is challenging to adapt our systems and patient care models, it is imperative that we continue to find ways to enhance the implementation of behavioral healthcare services in healthcare settings. We can accelerate our efforts by learning from each other’s attempts. Through this conference and its subsequent initiatives, it is our goal to continue to provide an educational summit where healthcare providers/organizations/teams can convene to share their insights, lessons learned, and best practices related to the effective integration of behavioral healthcare into the primary care setting.
Following completion of this activity, learners should be better able to:
- Identify core practices and structures for best practice of integrated behavioral health in primary care.
- Describe efforts in the state to build a community standard for integrated behavioral health care practice.
- Describe an evidence based, integrated approach to address PTSD in primary care.
- Utilize opportunities for networking and fostering relationships among conference attendees.

This is your chance to be an integral part of the Integrated Behavioral Healthcare conference! The conference planning committee is accepting proposals for interactive and informative breakout sessions that assist healthcare providers, staff, and administration implement evidence based practices and innovations in all aspects of integrated behavioral health. Some examples could be clinic policies/procedures that follow best practices (e.g., responding to patient aggression, billing/coding, etc.), evidence based interventions and/or treatment protocols for specific clinical issues in primary care (e.g., pain, anxiety, adherence, etc.), and integrated practices in secondary and tertiary care systems (e.g., hospital settings, specialty care). Proposals that explicitly address evidence based models and approaches within integrated behavioral health will be given special consideration this year. Chances are, if you have struggled with an issue at your site, others are probably struggling with that issue as well. Breakout sessions provide the opportunity for you to share what you have learned with others and even get feedback from our knowledgeable audience.
