Behavioral Health Integration
The Louisiana Public Health Institute is dedicated to supporting and enhancing behavioral health integration in the communities we serve. Since 2006, LPHI has been at the forefront of the behavioral health field, using data to inform decision-making and leveraging community partnerships to improve access to quality care for the safety net population. Over the years, our behavioral health integration portfolio has continued to grow. Our approach is to enhance service delivery at the systems level in order to maximize our impact on improving population health outcomes. We do this by building relationships, facilitating peer-to-peer learning opportunities, and providing technical assistance across the Gulf Region. We work directly with Federally Qualified Health Centers, community behavioral health agencies, social service organizations, school-based health centers, and government officials, as well as inform our own internal programs and initiatives. LPHI is also very much involved in the statewide behavioral health integration efforts and the City of New Orleans’ initiatives around behavioral health and violence prevention.
