Inspiration for Integration: Bringing Behavioral Health to Pediatric Populations
Friday, September 21, 2018
3:00PM – 6:00PM
Yakima Pediatrics – 402 S. 12th Ave, Yakima WA 98902

Explore the collaborative care model and learn about bringing integrated, financially sustainable behavioral health care into the pediatric primary care setting.

The University of Washington’s AIMS Center is a national leader in the collaborative care model to bring high quality mental health services into familiar settings, to get patients and families the care they need – where and when they need it – and monitor outcomes over time. This evidence-based model has resulted in positive outcomes for adults, and WCAAP is working with the AIMS Center to understand its potential for children and youth within primary care.


·      Anna Ratzliff, MD, PhD,  AIMS Center Director and trainer with American Psychiatric Association,  will present the collaborative care model, including clinical and financial considerations.

·      Leslie Graham, MSW, LICSW  and Sheryl Morelli, MD, FAAP will share the experience of the UW Neighborhood Kent/Des Moines Clinic with integrating care for kids, using collaborative care and chronic disease management models.

·      Daniel Smith, MSW, Interim Executive Director and VP of Clinical Integration at the Southwest Washington Accountable Community of Health (SWACH) will discuss the role SWACH has in developing priorities, alongside providers and payors, to enhance and expand the integration of primary and behavioral healthcare for children, youth and families


*NOTE: On September 22 we are holding a day-long Pediatric Population Health Forum to bring the best knowledge and strategies to improve child health in your practice, including how to make a meaningful impact on social determinants of health.  Learn more and register for September 22 here.
