Collaborative Care for Native American Health Centers
This project is a collaboration with the Portland Area Service Unit of the Indian Health Service (IHS) and George Fox University. George Fox University received a Health Services Resource Administration (HRSA) grant to promote integrated mental health care at two Oregon sites: the Chemawa Indian School’s Primary Care Clinic (operated by the Portland Area Service Unit) and Providence Medical Group in Newburg, OR. This project creates a learning collaborative among interested IHS and tribal clinics to implement Collaborative Care. Other clinics include the Warm Springs IHS unit and tribal clinics.
The AIMS Center is providing implementation coaching support and clinician training to support the project at the Indian Health Service and related sites.
