Description/Mission Statement

The Integrated Primary Care Special Interest Group is devoted to promoting and enhancing the delivery of evidence-based behavioral health care in primary care settings. We provide a forum for the exchange of information and foster relationships between behavioral health and medical professionals in order to:

  1. Facilitate the integration behavioral health professionals and biopsychosocial interventions into primary care settings.
  2. Advance research of behavioral health interventions in primary care.
  3. Support the training of students pursuing integrated primary care.
  4. Inform the development of policies that impact behavioral health care in primary care settings.

We meet these goals through meetings and symposia at SBM conferences, through listserv communication and by collaborating with other organizations that promote integrated primary care.
