Programs that provide services to survivors of torture have a long history of delivering collaborative, holistic, and interdisciplinary care that takes into account the complex needs of torture survivors. We recently carried out a national needs assessment, which confirmed that the majority of programs that serve torture survivors provide some form of integrated behavioral health care (IBHC) and recognize that care coordination across multiple disciplines is vital to responding to the multifaceted needs of survivors of torture.

In this two-part Measured Impact Webinar, we explore creating or further developing IBHC in your programs. We discuss how IBHC can enhance the quality of survivor care, foster engagement across disciplines, and improve health outcomes.
