The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Mental Health Services is accepting applications for the 2019 National Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions program. The purpose of this program is to advance the implementation of high-quality, evidence-based treatment for individuals with co-occurring physical and mental health conditions, including substance addictions. Data demonstrates that individuals with mental health conditions are far more likely to also experience physical health conditions; the co-occurrence of these conditions necessitates the delivery of holistic, integrated care. The goal of this grant is to ensure that these services are provided in the most effective manner possible.
The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due by March 29.
