Centerstone recently announced it received a $3 million five-year grant from the state of Illinois and the Substance Abuse and Mental health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The funds will be used to bolster integrated primary and behavioral health services in Madison county, Illinois.
The funds come in response to Centerstone’s involvement in SAMHSA’s “Promoting Integration of Primary Behavioral Health Care” (PIPBHC) grant, for which it was selected by the state to participate in. PIPBHC is a cooperative agreement that seeks to promote full integration and collaboration in clinical practice between primary and behavioral health care, as well as support and improve integrated care models for primary care and behavioral health. Specifically, Centerstone will use its funds to expand fully integrated and co-located collaboration between primary and behavioral health care—with a focus on individuals with co-occurring physical health conditions and chronic diseases.
Centerstone is a non-profit health care organization dedicated to delivering care that changes people’s lives. Centerstone provides mental health and addiction disorder treatment, education and support to communities in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and additionally offers individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities life skills development, employment, and housing services.
