2022 Stronger - P103 - Behavioral Health Clinical Navigator Promotes Equitable Access to Care for Youth - On Demand
The Rush Collaborative Care Program (CCP) expands patient access to mental health services through a team-based approach to depression screening and intervention. This program experienced significant declines in pediatric referrals following the collapse and restructuring of care management teams. The CCP engaged key stakeholders to develop the behavioral health clinical navigator role, charged with uniquely structuring the needs of the pediatric practice. This integrated approach substantially increased pediatric behavioral health navigation and promoted equitable access to behavioral health care in a landscape fraught with longstanding barriers to mental health services
