Collaborative Treatment with Primary Care

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Primary care providers (PCPs) play a significant role in reducing this global burden in responding to, identifying, and managing the mental health needs of children and adolescents. Services for behavioral health (BH) care needs can be provided by the PCP but might more appropriately be delivered by a psychiatric mental health (PMH) specialist, such as a PMH advanced practice registered nurse (APRN), psychologist, social worker, psychiatrist, or other person trained to manage the BH and mental health needs of children and adolescents. This chapter presents background information and discussion of issues in providing integrated BH and PC services through collaborative treatment models. The most common and researched collaborative and integrated practice models are presented. The team members of an interprofessional team are described. Barriers and facilitators to successful integration of BH and PC are reviewed.
