The Integrated Behavioral Health Project has developed an updated “Partners in Health: Mental Health, Primary Care and Substance Use Inter-agency Collaboration Tool Kit”, sponsored by the California Health Services Authority’s Statewide Stigma and Discrimination Reduction Initiative.  It was designed to help primary care clinics and behavioral health agencies forge collaborative relationships and provides job descriptions; sample agreements and contracts; screening instruments and evaluation measures; operational forms; strategies and prototypes for integrating mental and physical services; practical advice; issues to consider when brokering agreements; mutual role descriptions and much more.
