Increasing Behavioral Health Financial Investments To Address Systemic Inequities (H. Res. 1057) (Part 2) – integrated Delivery

RE: Previously posted Rep Kennedy H. Res. 1057: AAHD has joined 4 national organizations endorsing proposals by No Health Without Mental Health (NHMH) for a bolder vision and strategy to integrate behavioral health-general health-primary care than currently contained in H. Res. 1057. Page 14, lines 9-10 of H. Res. 1057 states: “mental health and physical health need to be treated together to treat the whole person.”  Rep Kennedy is also working on legislation to improve coordination. The NHMH paper would give more substance and significance to integration. The July 16 NHMH proposals submitted to Rep Kennedy are here: PDF.
