LOCAL EFFORTS

In Spring of 2017, Integral Care will open the new Judge Guy Herman Center for Mental Health Crisis Care, which will provide short-term emergency psychiatric crisis care that includes stabilization, assessment and treatment for people experiencing a mental health crisis.

With the support of Central Health and the Community Care Collaborative (CCC), Integral Care and Community Care have partnered to provide both behavioral health and primary care services at all of their respective clinics. This approach to integrated healthcare provides for a better patient experience and improved health outcomes.

Dell Medical School and Integral Care are working together to fully integrate mental health services into new treatment clinics. The first clinics with integrated mental health will be orthopedics, women’s health and primary care.

Integral Care is partnering with the Travis County Sheriffs Office to increase the number of individuals with mental illness who are diverted from jail. Integral Care’s Mobile Crisis Outreach Team is co-locating at the Travis County Jail so that individuals may be diverted into mental health services rather than being booked into jail.
