A team of researchers at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services (SPHHS) released a new analysis that looks into factors that impact the integration of mental health and substance abuse treatment services with medical care at community health centers.
The analysis found that most community health centers offered mental health services, although substance abuse and alcohol treatment services, psychiatric care and 24-hour crisis counseling services were available less widely. Health centers were more likely to render behavioral health services if they were larger or located in areas with more psychiatrists and psychologists.
