LANSING — Michigan has received up to $10 million to promote the integration of primary and behavioral health care efforts.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services said it recently received the grant money from the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

The program aims to improve access to and quality of care by strengthening the coordination of physical health, mental health and substance use services.

Up to $2 million annually for the next five years will be used to implement the Promoting Integration of Primary and Behavioral Health Care program.

State officials are partnering with community-based providers to help implement the program, including Cherry Health, Saginaw County Community Mental Health Services Program and the Shiawassee County CMHSP.
