Improving health outcomes and quality of life

Recent studies have shown that people with severe mental illnesses die earlier than the general population, mainly because of poorly recognized and treated physical health conditions and illnesses. It is also increasingly recognized that co-occurring physical and behavioral (mental) illnesses contribute disproportionately to the high cost of medical care.

There is growing interest in developing models of integrated care for people with mental illness, which will improve health outcomes and quality of life, while reducing overall costs.

The Center’s Integrated Primary and Behavioral Health Care Clinic, formerly Integrated Care,was created by a SAMSHA grant (2014).
