Nicholson Foundation Works to Strengthen Primary Care

Thursday, September 8, 2016

As part of their mission to improve New Jersey’s health care delivery systems and reduce the costs of care for its underserved populations, The Nicholson Foundation has been working to strengthen primary care in the state’s safety-net system. Central to this effort is support for the integration of behavioral health care (substance use and mental health treatment) into primary care settings.

With the explosion of the prescription opioid crisis in the past several years, and the concomitant awareness of the role of primary care providers in inadvertently contributing to it, this integration work has become urgent and essential.
