AIDS Education and Training Centers
This tool aims to assist HIV primary care teams that work in a range of clinical settings to develop and provide enhanced integration of behavioral health (BH) services. Similar to the HIV care continuum, the BH continuum consists of screening and diagnosis, referral and linkage, and treatment. With this tool, users can create workflows and other processes that include clearly defined roles and responsibilities. Resources for implementing these steps are provided in the last section of the tool, and include considerations for both BH specialty services for people with BH disorders and for community-based and informal services that support people with sub-threshold BH disorder signs and symptoms.
