This interactive session will describe the changes being tested by 10 hospitals in the Integrating Behavioral Health in the ED and Upstream Learning Community, convened by IHI and Well Being Trust, to achieve meaningful improvements for patients with mental health and substance abuse conditions, their families, and ED staff.
