Breakthrough Series Collaborative (BTSC)
What is BTSC?
This free 12-month program is an opportunity for clinics and practices to receive real time guidance and support from national experts on implementing Collaborative Care Model (CoCM). This program is open to any organization who serves a population with chronic mental health conditions, and who is committed to make lasting improvements to best serve their population. Applications are due by August 7, 2023.
What is CoCM?
CoCM is a systematic approach to treating mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders in primary care settings. The primary care team integrates the services of Behavioral Health Care Managers (BHCMs) and consulting psychiatrists with primary care provider (PCP) oversight to proactively manage chronic mental health conditions.
A committed team of 5-6 from each participating clinic and practice will participate in a series of learning sessions, coaching calls, and trainings throughout a 12-month period. These series of activities are meant to help foster accountability and buy-in towards implementation of changes that can get your organization closer to CoCM. An ideal team will include at least one leader (ex. Chief Medical officer) as well as PCP, BHCM, Care Coordinator, etc.
