The following manual is provided to the field as operational support in service of successful and sustainable Co-located, Collaborative Care (CCC) Primary Care-Mental Health Integration (PCMHI). Truly integrated healthcare involves a radical shift in conceptualizing care and challenges providers to function in ways that often contrast sharply with how they were trained to work. In addition to training staff to function in new ways, shaped by a population-based approach, the transformation of care must be supported by infrastructure to be sustained. Dozens of staff have attended recent national trainings in PC-MHI, and many have been clamoring for systematic guidance for “how-to” develop a viable integration system. While this relatively new care structure is evolving rapidly and often uniquely across the national system, the collective wisdom of the pioneers in this transformation has been gathered together here. Hopefully, the manual will highlight helpful structures and best practices for success, alert staff to common pitfalls, and save many the time otherwise spend to “re-invent the wheel”.
