Integrated Projects
Statewide Integrated Care Models PDF Print E-mail

Integrated care is not a new idea in North Carolina.  A number of exciting projects across North Carolina have been dedicated to testing effective models of collaboration between primary care and MH/DD/SAS providers.  The ICARE Partnership is committed to helping further our understanding of these approaches by sharing information about past and current projects.  In doing so, we hope to encourage synergy among ongoing efforts.  Below are some of the models from which we've been learning:
