Why Practice Collaborative Care?

Updated: January 25, 2022

The Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) has a robust evidence base with over eighty randomized controlled trials showing it is the best at treating depression in many populations and settings. CoCM is beneficial for Primary Care Providers (PCPs) and their patients because it offers an established evidence base, better medical outcomes, help with challenging patient cases, faster improvement, and the collaboration of a team.

We highly encourage that this document be shared with PCPs, stakeholders, and others looking to implement CoCM.
