The Affordable Care Act has spotlighted the need to better coordinate the physical and behavioral health care for individuals with serious mental illness and substance abuse disabilities.
Contra Costa County is well positioned to be a model county in the integration of physical and behavioral healthcare. Several integration projects are already underway within Contra Costa County with the overall purpose to develop a consumer-driven, recovery oriented, trauma-informed integrated system of care that will improve client outcomes.
Rubicon Programs and Contra Costa Health Services invite administrators, service providers, consumers and family members from the physical healthcare and behavioral healthcare communities to come together for a day of education, involvement and planning for the next steps in Contra Costa County's healthcare integration efforts.
