Description:

A significant proportion of individuals with mental health problems does not receive treatment, both in the United States and worldwide. Delivery of interventions in general medical settings, such as screening and brief counseling, is viewed as a promising strategy for narrowing this treatment gap.

Provides an overview of barriers to mental health care. Introduces evidence-based models of integrated physical and mental health care. Describes an array of mental health interventions that can be delivered in general medical settings (e.g., screening, brief intervention, case management, etc.), and evaluates the evidence supporting the use of such interventions. Explores integrated care in special settings (e.g., low- and middle-income countries, substance use care, emergency department).
