Delta Center for a Thriving Safety Net
In March 2022, The Delta Center for a Thriving Safety Net, in partnership with Oklahoma Primary Care Association (OKPCA) and Oklahoma Behavioral Health Association (OBHA), hosted a virtual site visit for Delta Center grantees. The site visit aimed to showcase collaboration across primary care and behavioral health at state and clinical levels, featuring the OKPCA, OBHA, and patients and providers from federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and community behavioral health organizations (CBHOs), including Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs).
The site visit included an overview of Oklahoma’s state policy landscape, a spotlight on the state associations’ work together, and examples of primary care and behavioral health integration in action. Providers from the featured organizations shared compelling examples of how peers and individuals with lived experience have helped to improve care for clients. In doing so, they are helping shape an overall system rooted in what is best for the individuals served.
