Behavioral Health Care Should Be Integral Part of PCMH

The American Board of Family Medicine, the Association of Departments of Family Medicine (AAFP) recently joined five other national family medicine organizations to release "Joint Principles: Integrating Behavioral Health Care Into the Patient-Centered Medical Home." Published in the March/April Annals of Family Medicine, the new document complements the Joint Principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and was created to address bringing behavioral health into the PCMH model.

The document reviews critical needs that must be addressed when integrating behavioral health care into the PCMH, such as clear and consistent language across disciplines regarding the respective roles and skill sets required for physicians, behavioral health clinicians and other members of the health care team.
