Overview

SAMHSA PBHCI Program

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the goal of improving the physical health status of people with mental illnesses and addictions, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration developed the Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration (PBHCI) Program. Through this program, SAMHSA provides support to communities to coordinate and integrate primary care services into publicly funded, community-based behavioral health settings, resulting in:

  • Improved access to primary care services;
  • Improved prevention, early identification, and intervention to reduce the incidence of serious physical illnesses, including chronic disease;
  • Increased availability of integrated, holistic care for physical and behavioral disorders; and
  • Improved overall health status of clients.

The following are the PBHCI Regional Clusters:
