Vision & Goals

Vision & Goals

C-PAC envisions a future for patientsin Colorado where their unique healthcare needs are met in a comprehensive way by highly qualified professionals.  We intend to support this vision with the following activities:

  • Assist in improving access to behavioral healthcare treatment;
  • Promote systematic, evidence-based behavioral health screenings;
  • Increase the capacity of primary care medical providers to deliver mental health care independently and team with local specialists when needed;
  • Develop well-functioning primary care/specialist relationships among primary care medical providers and psychiatrists;
  • Assure that scarce specialty psychiatric resources are directed toward patients with the most complex and high-risk conditions.
  • Offer primary care medical providers real-time telephone consultation with a psychiatrist within 30 minutes of any request (8am-5pm, M-F, excluding holidays);
  • Provide targeted, effective care coordination for patients who require specialty mental health care beyond what their primary care medical providers can deliver;
