Achieving Mental Health Equity: Collaborative Care.

Jackson-Triche ME, Un├╝tzer J, Wells KB. Achieving Mental Health Equity: Collaborative Care. The Psychiatric clinics of North America. 2020 Sep 1; 43(3):501-510.


The literature supports the effectiveness of systems-based integrated care models, particularly collaborative care, to improve access, quality of care, and health outcomes for behavioral health conditions. There is growing evidence for the promise of collaborative care to reduce behavioral health disparities for racial and ethnic, low-income, and other at-risk populations. Using rapid literature review, this article highlights what is known about how collaborative care may promote health equity for behavioral health conditions, by reducing disparities in access, quality, and outcomes of care. Further, it explores innovative intervention and engagement strategies to promote behavioral health equity for at-risk groups.
