For the past two years, Health & Medicine’s Behavioral Health-Primary Care Integration Learning Collaborative—an interdisciplinary group of community behavioral health agencies, primary care providers, and people in recovery—have been working together to identify and adopt innovative strategies for behavioral health-primary care integration in Illinois.
On June 21st we will gather to share lessons learned from this work about on-the-ground strategies to improve behavioral health services and address policy barriers to optimal integration models. We invite you to join a diverse group of providers, advocates, policy makers, and people with lived experience to explore how the Learning Collaborative’s work can help advance state-wide reforms to improve the mental health system.
Members of the Learning Collaborative will lead a dialogue with invited participants from the House Mental Health Committee, officials from the Department of Healthcare and Family Services, and the Department of Human Services, and recovery and empowerment advocates from Next Steps, Gift of Voice, DBSA, and Access Living.

Our mission is to represent the interests of our members in order
to ensure access and availability of a comprehensive system of
accountable, quality behavioral healthcare services for the people of Illinois.
