Hospital & Community Teams

The Integrative Behavioral Health (IBH) Project provides selected Minnesota critical access hospitals customizable technical assistance to successfully integrate behavioral health services organizationally, operationally and community-wide.

Since 2015, RHI has served three cohorts of IBH Program hospitals. In 2017, a need emerged to address the number one roadblock to integrating behavioral health in the first two cohorts: the societal stigma of mental health. Six hospitals from the Wilderness Health are participating in the IBH Stigma Project. One hospital participated in Cohort 3 as well as the Stigma Project.

Cohort 1 - 2015-16

Includes five critical access hospitals (CAHs). These hospitals have implemented promising practices and innovative solutions. Read the measurable and non-measurable outcomes in each hospital profile or visit the Project Outcomes page for a summary.

Cohort 2 - 2016-17

Includes four CAHs. These hospitals have implemented promising practices and innovative solutions and are working on sharing their outcomes and accomplishments of the project.

Cohort 3 - 2017-18

Includes four CAHs. These hospitals have completed community-wide strategic planning and are working to implement promising practices and innovative solutions.

Stigma Project - 2018-19

Includes six CAHs from Wilderness Health. These hospitals have completed community-wide strategic planning and are working to create healthy communities where there is no stigma of mental illness.
