What is behavioral Health?

The term “behavioral health” in this context means the promotion of mental health, resilience and wellbeing; the treatment of mental and substance use disorders; and the support of those who experience and/or are in recovery from these conditions, along with their families and communities. ¹


What does Integrated Behavioral Health Look like at our health centers?

Integrated behavioral health (IBH) is the collaboration between primary care and behavioral healthcare under one roof. All 8 of our member federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) offer comprehensive and culturally-aligned behavioral health services in-house.
