Show Notes

In this episode, we are fortunate to have a conversation with Holly Roberts, Ph.D., who is an Associate Professor and faculty trainer in the Department of Psychology at the Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and a licensed psychologist in Nebraska.  Hear directly from Dr. Roberts about her passion and experience in integrated care, how her team has worked towards integrating behavioral health providers into primary care, and how they measure success.  The conversation highlights the importance of having a behavioral health champion within primary care and touches on how the pandemic has intensified the need for behavioral health services in primary care practices.
