Our Resources

For Many

If we want a brighter future for mental health and substance use, it will take all of us doing our part.

Below are some of our resources to help organizations of all types ensure mental healthcare and substance use treatment is part of their plan forward.

Clinicians & Health Systems

Half of all people who die from suicide saw their primary care doctors shortly before ending their lives. With a shortage of specialty mental health clinicians and the trust Americans have in their doctors, primary care physicians are America’s front line in our battle against mental illness. Our goal is to empower health systems and their primary care practices with the resources they need to be successful in combating mental health and substance use and reaching people early and effectively, when health needs – including those posing risks of suicide – can receive more effective and equitable care.

Employers, Unions and States

Take charge of mental health care for millions of Americans with the purchasing power in your hands. As the purchasers of healthcare for over half of the nation, employers influence the delivery of mental health services more than any other. When they join forces with other purchasers, like unions and governments, they make an even bigger impact. What it takes is a just a few small changes to how purchasers negotiate with insurance companies and third-party administrators. And we are here to help.

Pediatricians and Schools

Half of all mental health conditions develop by age 14 and then go undetected for 8-10 years after symptoms emerge. Pediatric Collaborative Care solves this problem through early detection and treatment of mental health conditions. As with every other illness, early detection and treatment improves outcomes by reversing the disease course early in its tracks, thus averting the crises and tragedies so often seen with untreated illness. It also frees up the behavioral health specialty care workforce—improving their efficiency by 300-400%. Join us in making pediatric Collaborative Care the new national standard.

With the help of insurers, equitable access is within reach. From better reimbursement to hassle-free administration, insurers are the key to transforming mental health care. And here’s an easy step to make it happen: invest in training and startup costs for Collaborative Care. Trailblazers like Blue Cross Blue Shield Michigan have already shown the impact this can have on health. Not to mention, healthier patients mean lower medical costs for everyone. Join us to make accessible care the new norm in mental health.
