The general health integration framework is an organizing roadmap to help providers redesign integrated services in Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) settings. Over the past 12 months, we led a learning collaborative comprised of 19 community behavioral health clinics, of which 18 are CCBHCs across the United States. The learning collaborative piloted the framework and its corresponding metrics to explore its ability to advance and sustain integrated care. Key findings from our data collection, successes and challenges of integration will be shared to wider CCBHC audience that may be interested in pursuing integrated care.
