A Behavioral Health Community Partner (BHCP) client recognized the need to integrate care across the BHCP and Adult Community Clinical Services (ACCS) programs. To address this need, we analyzed the current state of both programs, collaborated extensively with BHCP and ACCS staff, reviewed data, interviewed key stakeholders and studied best practices. As a result, we successfully developed strategies to integrate the two programs in the most efficient manner possible, resulting in increase BHCP enrollment and in a coordinated, efficient program design.
