Psychiatry & Primary Care Integration Across the Lifespan

Colleagues & Friends-Greetings from New Orleans !

The action paper Psychiatry & Primary Care Integration Across the Lifespan was unanimously approved by our APA Assembly, earlier today, Sunday May 23rd, 2010!

A new day/era dawns for American Psychiatry, rekindling our solid roots in the House of Medicine. Many thanks to all who have worked with us on it over a two year span, since May 2008 when our original action paper was endorsed by our APA Assembly. Many thanks to Anita Everett, Roger Peele, Michael Houston, Catherine May, Hind Benjelloun & Kayla Pope and to all our colleagues in the Washington Psychiatric Society, Area III Council and the Council on Children, Adolescents and their Families who embraced our vision and supported our mission.Now the challenging work of implementation begins, first with a symposium this afternoon on The Medical Home: Is There a Place for Psychiatry in it?

Eliot Sorel, M.D., Washington Psychiatric Society


  1. Without your personal hard work this important step would not have been taken. Thank you. In an era of chronic disease management and healthcare reform, integration is the right path.

  2. Do you have any idea how many psychiatrists currently work in primary care settings?
