Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) Model

The PCBH Model focuses on enhancing the primary care team’s ability to manage and treat behavioral health problems and biopsychosocial-influenced health conditions, resulting in improvements in primary care services for the entire clinic population. In this model, the Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs) are part of the primary care team with expertise in the social, behavioral, emotional, and psychological aspects of health.

This training will help you:

• Understand the key components of the PCBH model
• Identify the team members essential for the PCBH model
• Understand essentials for practice transformation

Collaborative Care Model (CoCM)

The Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) is a systematic approach to the treatment of behavioral health conditions (mental health and/or substance use) in primary care settings. The model integrates the services of behavioral health care managers (BHCMs) and consulting psychiatrists with primary care provider (PCP) oversight to proactively manage behavioral health conditions as chronic diseases, rather than treating acute symptoms.

This training will help you:

• Understand the key components of the CoCM model
• Identify the team members essential for the CoCM model
• Understand essentials for practice transformation
