Proposed Project: Evaluation of SAMHSA Primary Care Behavioral Health Integration Grant Program. Emergency Information Collection Clearance Request—OMB No. 0990-NEW-Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation .

Abstract: The Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration are funding an independent evaluation of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration/Center for Mental Health Services' (SAMHSA/CMHS) Primary Care Behavioral Health Integration (PBHCI) grant program. Four-year PBHCI grants were awarded to thirteen grantees on October 1, 2009. A second group of nine grants and a third group of up to 38 additional grants will be awarded prior to October 1, 2010. The purpose of the PBHCI grants is to improve the overall wellness and physical health status of people with serious mental illnesses (SMI), including individuals with co-occurring substance use disorders, by supporting communities to coordinate and integrate primary care services into publicly funded community mental health and other community-based behavioral health settings. The information collected through the evaluation will assist SAMHSA in assessing whether integrated primary care services produce improvements in the physical and mental health of the SMI population receiving services from community-based behavioral health agencies.
