Report on Integrating Mental Health Into PACT (IMHIP) in the VA

In August 2012, the VA Primary Care Office charged an interdisciplinary group of 11 VA nationwide subject matter experts to participate in a workgroup to identify Primary Care-Mental Health Integration (PC-MHI) goals and objectives given the reorganization of VA primary care into PACT, and to make recommendations for integrating mental health into PACT. The charge to the Integrating Mental Health Into PACT (IMHIP) Workgroup focused on clarifying a vision and goals for PC-MHI built on the past but looking to the future. The charge also asked for expert assessment of the progress of the current PC-MHI initiative, achievements, and gaps.

The IMHIP Report provides recommendations on the facility-level, VISN-level, and VACO-level for integrating mental health into PACT.
