Behavioral Health Network

Network Overview

A concern among the medical community is the prevalence of undetected or misdiagnosed alcohol use disorders (AUD) and depression in the U.S. According to the National Council for Behavioral Health and the Institute of Medicine, nearly 1 in 5 Medicare beneficiaries live with one or more mental health or substance use conditions.

As the population of adults age 65 and older continues to grow, identification through screening within primary care practices is the first step to help improve the lives of Medicare beneficiaries with these conditions.

The Behavioral Health Network is convening an online community of primary care physicians, inpatient psychiatric facilities (IPFs), hospitals, partners and community stakeholders from Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico and Texas to identify and implement solutions to help Medicare beneficiaries in these areas who are suffering from depression and AUDs receive needed care.

Join the Behavioral Health Network

By joining this network, you and/or your organization will receive access to free resources and training to help to increase the screening rates for depression and AUDs of Medicare beneficiaries receiving care at primary care practices, and help reduce the 30-day readmission rate and increase follow-up care for patients discharged from inpatient psychiatric facilities.
