What is Integrated Behavioral Health Care?

Integrated behavioral health and primary care brings together physical health and behavioral health services in one clinic to treat the whole person - body and mind. 

Fully integrated clinics offer a collaborative, team-based approach that results in better patient outcomes, decreased health care costs, and improved patient and provider satisfaction.

The University of Colorado Department of Family Medicine has an enduring commitment to integrated behavioral health care that stretches back more than 30 years.
