Our Mission

Our mission is to create a new social norm, and expectation, in our country that "health" always includes mental and physical health, so that all citizens will seek help for both conditions whenever they need to.


And to ensure that the actual delivery of quality, evidence and team-based integrated med/psych care is a reality for patients in their clinical encounters, in all health settings, primary care, specialty medical care, and specialty behavioral health care, and thereby leading to much improved overall health outcomes for the populace, an enhanced individual experience of of care, and an efficient, cost-effective health sector.


HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS EXPERIENCE WITH
 BEHAVIORAL INTEGRATION


8 WAYS TO TO KNOW IF YOUR PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR IS OFFERING YOU INTEGRATED CARE

SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR PARTNERS & COLLABORATORS

John A Hartford Foundation

THE WORK NHMH BEGAN 9 YEARS AGO - to make quality evidence based integrated medical/behavioral care a reality in our doctors' clinics - moved forward significantly today with the passage of a new federal health law changing how Medicare pays primary care doctors (called SGR reform). The new payment formula  lays a solid precedent and foundation for payment reform, rewarding doctors who deliver evidence based, quality care approaches, e.g. collaborative care, that are shown to improve patients' health outcomes, and are cost effective at the same time. This new approach for paying doctors for quality, effective care, will soon also be coming to patients under 65 yrs receive medical care as well Medicare patients over 65.  The country is moving in the right direction to provide quality medical and physical care for all of us in our primary care clinics. Nonetheless, there remains a lot of hard work ahead to ensure that doctors actually deliver this kind of proven, quality care. NHMH will continue to work, with others, to make sure that happens!
