This chapter provides a brief introduction to the role of integrated mental health care in improving access to care. It outlines some of the major models of integrated care, including the collaborative care model and the primary care behavioral health model, focusing on commonalties and differences in the models and considerations that drive the choice among models or their adaptation. It then describes ways in which integrated care psychiatrists may serve in clinics, including ways in which they can best use their expertise to expand psychiatric care access to more people. Special situations and specialty clinics are briefly described. Finally, the personal characteristics of psychiatrists considering a career in integrated care are reviewed.
