Webinar Series: Co-Location of Primary Care and Behavioral Health Services

Throughout August, OneCity Health hosted a series of webinars on the Co-Location of Primary Care and Behavioral Health Services for our ten pilot sites currently planning for co-location. Led by consultants from Grassi & Co., our vendor currently working with our pilot sites, the webinar recordings were posted on this page following each session.

In addition to the webinars posted below, in June we hosted a webinar titled, “Navigating the Regulatory Options for Co-location of Primary Care and Behavioral Health,” which is available to view here.
