Project: Co-Location and Integration of HIV Prevention and Medical Care Into Behavioral Health Program—NEW

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services, (CMHS), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) are requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for new data collection activities associated with their Co-location and Integration of HIV Prevention and Medical Care into Behavioral Health Program. The program is designed to support integrated behavioral health and physical health services for racial/ethnic populations at high risk for behavioral health disorders and at high risk for contracting HIV.

This information collection is needed to provide SAMHSA with objective information to document the reach and impact of the Co-location and Integration of HIV Prevention and Medical Care into Behavioral Health program. The information will be used to monitor quality assurance and quality performance outcomes for organizations funded by this grant program. The information will also be used to assess the impact of services on behavioral health and physical health services for individuals served by this program.

Collection of the information included in this request is authorized by Section 505 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa-4)—Data Collection. Further support for the program was provided in the 2013 Senate Appropriations Report 113-71. The report urged SAMHSA to “focus its efforts on building capacity and outreach to individuals at risk or with a primary substance abuse disorder and to improve efforts to identify such individuals to prevent the spread of HIV.” Additional support for this data collection effort is provided by the 2013 National HIV/AIDS Strategy which instructed SAMHSA to “support and rigorously evaluate the development and implementation of new integrated behavioral health models to address the intersection of substance use, mental health, and HIV.”
