AHRQ Academy is a resource dedicated to the integration of behavioral health and primary care. The information provided on the AHRQ Academy website is organized by experts in this field and includes research, expert insight, and suggestions for how to integrate behavioral health and primary care. The Academy also supports medication assisted treatment in primary care through technical assistance and resources.
One resource available is called the Playbook, which offers guidance to primary care practices and health systems about integrating behavioral health. There is a brief video tutorial available about the Playbook.
In addition to resources, AHRQ Academy has a community of individuals who are interested in integrating behavioral health and primary care. Joining the community allows access to groups, discussions and events.
For those not familiar with Integrated Behavioral Health, AHRQ Academy provides a description of what this is and its benefits.
