AHRQ Academy for Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care

AHRQ's vision is that the Academy for Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care will function as both a coordinating center and a national resource for people committed to delivering comprehensive, integrated health care. The AHRQ Web portal provides resources needed to advance the integration of primary care and behavioral health care, and to foster a collaborative environment for dialogue and discussion among relevant thought leaders.

The portal is structured around seven topics: research, education, policy, financing and sustainability, clinical and community, health information technology, resources, and collaboration.
