Online Education | Ambulatory Care Nursing 2015 - Primary Care + Mental Health Care = Good Care
This module will discuss the rationale and structure of integrated, behavioral health care in the primary care setting. It will address experiences working in two, different but similar settings: one where behavioral health is integrated into primary care, and the other where primary care is "brought to" a mental health center.
