Mental Health & Substance Use

Every other Tuesday from 12:00-1:00 pm EST beginning January 14th through April 7th.


Mental health and substance use disorders are common in the primary care setting, and frequently co-exist with and worsen the outcomes of chronic diseases. These disorders are undertreated due to inadequate recognition, a shortage of behavioral health clinicians, stigma, and challenges navigating complex healthcare systems. The goal of this course is to facilitate a team approach to improving recognition and treatment of mental health and substance use disorders in primary care through a mix of brief didactic presentations and discussion of complex patient cases.
