What can integrated primary and behavioral health care providers do to connect with individuals who experience homelessness – and keep them engaged in services? Individuals experiencing homelessness face many challenges that can prevent them from engaging in primary and behavioral health care integrated services, such as a trauma history, distrust of the health care system, extended periods of homelessness, or unresolved substance use issues. Join this webinar, a partnership between the SAMSHA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions and the SAMHSA Homeless and Housing Resource Network, to learn considerations for working with the homeless population. Hear how a SAMHSA Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration (PBHCI) grantee provides mobile services and medical outreach to engage clients and how sober housing may be an option for those also seeking substance use treatment.
