The Center for Integrated Health Care capitalizes on the abilities, drive, and autonomy of advanced practice nurses, resulting in an exciting, timely academic nursing center exemplar. People with severe and persistent mental illnesses receive care that is targeted specifically to a population with chronic mental illnesses and tailored to the unique individual by integrating primary and mental health care. This Center is a partnership between Thresholds, a psychosocial rehabilitation center, staff and University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Nursing faculty. The Center's goals are to provide quality care, support teaching and learning for nursing and other health professional learners, and generate new knowledge related to the integration of mental and physical health care. To achieve long-term sustainability, the Center must partner with a federally qualified health center.
