Providing Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment in an Integrated Care Setting

Session 5 of 5: Providing Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment in an Integrated Care Setting

Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (Mountain Plains MHTTC) and the Mountain Plains Addiction Technology Transfer Center (Mountain Plains ATTC)

Thursday May 27, 2021 02:00 pm to 03:00 pm EDT
United States

This training series is on skills and best practices for supporting individuals experiencing co-occurring mental health and substance-use disorders. Only 7.4% of individuals with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders receive treatment for both disorders, and approximately 55% are receiving no treatment at all (Priester, et al 2016). Access, availability, and affordability to behavioral health treatment is even more difficult when residing in rural areas.  

This series will offer strategies and interventions to address the challenges faced by providers working in rural and remote communities and explore skills and practices that can help support interventions for this population. This series will build on the previous work of the Mountain Plains MHTTC and ATTC-developed product Depression, Alcohol and Farm Stress: Addressing Co-Occurring Disorders in Rural America.

Registration is free and required. Register for any/all sessions of this series. The series is available for individuals residing in Heath and Human Services (HHS) Region 8 (CO, MT, ND, SD, UT, and WY).

Session Five

Integrated physical, mental health, and substance use care is effective in supporting the needs of individuals experiencing co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. This session will describe effective integrated care models that promote long-term interventions for individuals experiencing co-occurring disorders.
