Behavioral Health

Expanding community-based behavioral and primary care service quality and accessibility.


Our Behavioral Health focus area works to increase the quality of and access to behavioral health services at the community level by creating a bridge between primary care, community-based services, hospitals, schools, and the criminal justice system.

The team connects Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), community behavioral health agencies, social service organizations, school-based health centers, and governmental partners across the Gulf South to provide technical assistance, trauma informed care best practices, and various learning opportunities. Additionally, it strives to inform local and state behavioral health policy by providing policy makers and community leaders with data-informed patient-centered research and practices.

Programs and Initiatives

The Behavioral Health Integration Learning Community

The Behavioral Health Integration Learning Community (BHI-LC) was designed to improve access, quality, coordination, and sustainability of integrated models of care for healthcare providers. The BHI-LC is open to LPHI partners in the Greater New Orleans area and along the gulf coast that are delivering or interested in delivering behavioral healthcare, primary healthcare, and social services to under served populations.
