Having articulated the role of behavioral health in the person-centered healthcare home, this paper emphasizes the need for a bi-directional approach, addressing the integration of primary care services in behavioral health settings as well as the need for behavioral health services in primary care settings. Two models are proposed for behavioral health providers who envision a role as a healthcare home: a unified program similar to the Cherokee model in Tennessee; and focused partnerships between primary care and behavioral health providers.
