Primary & Behavioral Health Care Integration Project (PBHCI)
PBHCI aims to improve the quality and longevity of life for people living with severe and persistent mental illness by linking them to primary and specialty care services and facilitating communication among behavioral health and primary care providers. The project, which is open to all Bowen Center clients over the age of 18 also provides several workshops on topics including smoking cessation, weight loss and nutrition and co-occurring disorders. PBHCI is made possible by a $1.6 million, funded four-year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). SAMHSA is an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation. For contact information, click here.
