The behavioral health field is in a state of unprecedented transformation. Recent legislative enactments, including mental health and substance use disorder-parity laws, as well as the carve-in of behavior health services into managed healthcare plans, are expanding access to behavioral healthcare. And with increased mental health and substance use disorder awareness, it is becoming clear that systematic coordination of patients’ healthcare needs increases access to care and drives significant cost reductions. As a result, integrated care models that include mental health, substance use disorder treatment, and physical health are becoming a priority across the country.
