With their lived experience of recovery and resiliency from mental illness and/or substance use, in addition to skills taught in training, peer providers promote hope, connection, trust, and activation of self-management for chronic conditions. Join Larry Fricks, CIHS Deputy Director and Lori Ashcraft, co-founder of Recovery Innovations, for a series of Q&A calls around hiring, roles, and supervision of peer providers. These calls provide an opportunity for grantees to share common challenges and solutions around the peer workforce in integrated health settings.

The SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) compiled Analyzing the Costs of Integrated Care: A Brief Guide for Behavioral Health Care Clinics to help PBHCI grantees and other community behavioral health centers understand the process of estimating and analyzing the costs of providing primary care services to adults with serious mental illness. The guide provides an overview of the key terms and offers five steps to conduct a cost analysis. Each step is informed and explained with examples from grantees who have explored the costs of their primary care services and shared their lessons learned.
Check out the guide now, and share your strategies and experiences determining the costs of providing integrated care with us at Integration@theNationalCouncil.org.
