Integrated Behavioral Health Reduces Depression and Anxiety in Primary Care Patients, Improving Quality of Life and Reducing Costs

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

November 24, 2010

 

Summary: People's Community Clinic integrates assessment and treatment of behavioral health issues into primary care services for its largely low-income population. Based on the Improving Mood Promoting Access to Collaborative Treatment (IMPACT) model, the program uses primary care physicians to ask basic questions to identify suspected cases of depression and anxiety. Physicians then refer these patients to an onsite social worker for a more formal assessment. Those who screen positive for depression or anxiety receive a referral to an onsite behavioral health specialist who provides cognitive behavioral therapy, works with the patient's physician to identify appropriate medications, and monitors the patient on an ongoing basis. A consulting psychiatrist assists with complex cases and works with the behavioral health specialist and physician as needed. The program enhanced access to mental health care services, improved quality of life, and reduced the incidence of depression and anxiety, utilization of primary care and emergency department services, and overall health care costs. Spanish-speaking patients appear to have benefited disproportionately from the program in certain areas. Funding sources: Hogg Foundation; St. David's Foundation.

Mental health care in schools at crossroads; Early diagnosis and treatment crucial for fragile students, but few area districts can afford it

Houston Chronicle

November 29, 2010

 

They cut themselves, abuse drugs or alcohol, threaten suicide, disrupt classes. Many don't learn that they suffer from mental illness until they land in the juvenile justice system. Early intervention and easy access to care are critical in keeping mentally ill youths in school and out of jail, mental health advocates say. Yet only a handful of Houston-area schools offer mental health services.

Task force wants Texas Legislature to improve indigent defense system

Fort Worth Star-Telegram

November 25, 2010

 

A shortage of qualified criminal defense attorneys has delayed felony trials in some parts of Texas and resulted in some low-income people accused of misdemeanor offenses going without counsel, according to the Texas Task Force on Indigent Defense. Counties are also struggling to pay for indigent defense, the task force says. ...  To help address the problems, the task force is calling on the Legislature to make it easier for counties to establish public defender's offices or to manage programs that assign attorneys to represent criminal defendants who cannot afford their own counsel.

Private Providers Fight Back Over Service Change

Texas Tribune

November 29, 2010

 

For years, the state paid private providers who care for people with disabilities to help the clients decide how many services they need and how intensive they should be. But an 11th-hour change state lawmakers inserted into the budget last session stripped the private providers of this case management responsibility, giving it instead to local, quasi-governmental Mental Retardation Authorities, who administer publicly funded services to people with disabilities.

County prosecutor fights for insurance coverage for autistic daughter

Fort Worth Star-Telegram

November 27, 2010

 

... Texas law requires private, fully funded insurance plans to cover ABA, but not self-funded plans, which are becoming more popular with county, state and federal entities because they are more cost-effective. Experts say stories like Martinez's are not uncommon in the convoluted, confusing world of health insurance. And as more companies go to self-funded plans, clients are discovering that some treatments and medications once paid for are no longer covered.

A multimillionaire who rarely gets to spend a dime; The heir to an oil fortune is powerless as lawyers, trustees, judges and guardians determine his fate

Houston Chronicle

November 29, 2010

 

... Despite $65 million-plus in assets, di Portanova - described as one of the world's wealthiest "partially incapacitated" men - controls a single credit card that maxes out at $1,000 a month. Fluent in Italian and English, a poet and patron of the arts, di Portanova has suffered from schizophrenia and has, say those who know him, a distaste for litigation and financial mumbo-jumbo. Though judged unable to manage his money or most personal decisions, he did successfully fight the courts to regain his right to marry, write his own will and control pocket money.

Backed up immigration courts provide slow processing

McAllen Monitor

November 27, 2010

 

...Earlier this year, the ABA commissioned and later endorsed a report calling for an overhaul of the immigration court system, saying federal crackdowns on illegal immigrants had stretched the courts' resources too thin, with caseloads for immigration judges now about three times that of federal district judges. Among other recommendations, the ABA called for providing legal representation for children and those suffering from mental illness, along with cutting down the number of immigrants without criminal histories who are thrown into ICE detention centers.

Of all the scary scenarios predicted for the new health law this is among the scariest: A new survey of doctors predicts the rapid extinction of the private-practice physician. A survey of some 2,400 MDs from around the country found nearly three quarters said they plan to retire, work part-time, stop taking new patients, become an employee, or seek a non-clinical position in the next one to three years.

Green: Opting Out of Medicaid is Bad for Texas; Federal dollars at stake in fight over health costs

Houston Chronicle

November 24, 2010

 

The current estimated $20 billion budget shortfall in Texas has encouraged state lawmakers, including Gov. Rick Perry, to float several proposals to make up for the budget deficit. One of these proposals is to drop out of the Medicaid program in order to save state funds. While the idea of dropping out of Medicaid may look good on paper, this proposal will have many negative unintended consequences. Currently, 6 million individuals in Texas are uninsured, which gives Texas one of the highest rates of uninsured individuals and children in the country.

Houston Chronicle

... What has prevented screening for postpartum depression from being more widely adopted by pediatric practices? One factor, according to the report from the American Academy of Pediatrics, is that pediatricians feel they lack the necessary training. Mental Health America of Greater Houston, through its Yates Children Memorial Fund, offers training and tool kits to help bridge this knowledge gap in our community.

If we can save the mentally ill, then why don't we?

Dallas Morning News

November 28, 2010

 

... Some people with mental illness simply cannot conceive that they have an illness or need medicine. Their illness robs them of self-awareness. Other people may be coaxed into taking medicine, but as soon as the medicine makes them feel better, they stop taking it. We don't want to lock all these people up in psychiatric institutions just to force them to take their meds. And we couldn't afford it if we did. So we end up with many people like Antwine, mostly alternating between jail and homelessness, self-medicating with drugs and alcohol. But Assisted Outpatient Treatment offers another option. No one is locked up. People are treated as outpatients. But they are "assisted" by a judge's order.

Nurse-practitioner law worth Legislature's debate

Dallas Morning News

November 29, 2010

 

By just about any measure, Texas ranks abysmally low in access to primary health care. According to federal statistics, our state is 42nd in the number of doctors per 100,000 population. There are no primary care providers in 25 of the state's 254 counties, which forces residents in those largely rural areas to travel long distances just for basic visits. At the same time, there are 12,000 advanced practice registered nurses, whose training certifies them to see patients, make basic diagnoses and write prescriptions. In most states, these nurse practitioners are permitted to exercise the full extent of their training and expertise. But not in Texas.
