Integration of primary care and behavioral health is a cornerstone of state innovations to improve quality of care and health outcomes, and reduce health care costs for children and adults with behavioral health needs. What are some of the innovative strategies that states are using to integrate these complex systems? How have states tackled complex issues such as financing, organizational mergers, alignment between Medicaid and mental health agencies, linkages with corrections systems, and provider capacity? This interactive workshop session features the work of states that are leading the way in this area.
