Experts with real-world experience. Dedicated to advancing your integration.

Denver Health has successfully integrated behavioral health into our nine primary care clinics and many of our specialty clinics. Our integrated behavioral health department is financially sustained through billing; no grants or organizational write-off. We have a robust standardized program with interdisciplinary behavioral health providers including: psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, and addiction counselors. The Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) Academy is comprised of these individuals who use their expertise to teach professionals and medical systems the tools necessary to provide this challenging, yet rewarding service. 

What We Offer

The IBH Academy supports individual clinicians and medical practices in Colorado and beyond to help them achieve their integration goals. Whether you take a course or consult with the IBH Academy, you will be learning from individuals who have nationally recognized expertise and ongoing practice experience with patients across the lifespan.

The IBH Academy offers:

  1. Classroom trainings for behavioral health clinicians and primary care teams to learn essential skills for successful practice.
  2. Practice coaching & consultations for clinics or systems looking to establish or advance IBH services.
  3. Learning consortia & online resource sharing for behavioral health clinicians to garner professional support and receive peer consultation.
  4. Professional presentations for trainings, conferences and on-site seminars.

Classroom Trainings

Our foundation courses are a collection of intensive workshops geared towards behavioral health clinicians and primary care team members (medical providers and clinical support staff) who have become accustomed to practicing in their own silos. These courses do not teach the fundamentals of diagnosis, treatment, and collaboration associated with routine care in any discipline. Rather, trainees will learn the essential skills necessary to be successful practicing within an integrated setting. All courses are held on-site at one of our integrated clinics, so you can see the concepts in practice during a tour.

Practice Coaching & Consultations

Whether your practice is just starting to integrate or is looking to optimize or advance integration, our experts can provide invaluable information and insight in the areas of clinical intervention, financial sustainability, and systems operations. Consultation is tailored for each practice. It varies from a one-time discussion to ongoing support.

Membership is available with an annual fee of $100. For more information or to join a learning consortium, email us.
