Through rigorous examination, the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) has distinguished itself as the most evidence-based, effective, and financially sustainable form of behavioral health integration. Nevertheless, its implementation has been minimal and fraught with practical barriers. This session will provide a foundational overview of behavioral health integration, highlight the five pillars of CoCM, engage the audience with an active role play to demystify operational aspects of CoCM within primary care, and explore examples of Texas-based initiatives supporting health systems as they adopt CoCM. Attendees will better understand how CoCM addresses the current mental health crisis and offsets workforce challenges.
