The summit is an opportunity for everyone involved in patient care – case managers and social workers, doctors and mental health professionals, representatives from the foster care system, families and caregivers, insurance payors and referral sources – to discuss the bifurcation of medical and behavioral care in the U.S. Our goal is to raise awareness of barriers to holistic treatment, especially for the most vulnerable populations, and build a community of advocates committed to improving access to integrated care.
