The intersection of poverty, migration, and health creates a unique set of behavioral health issues that are often exacerbated by exposure to trauma. This session will review the concept of trauma‐informed care to promote integrated behavioral health practices in primary care which address the complex social, cultural, economic, and justice factors that contribute to disease burden. Effectively addressing behavioral health issues for migrants requires both astute observation and gentle questioning on the part of the clinician. For many migrant patients, primary care is the only source of behavioral health services. Recognition of behavioral health concerns may be complicated when patients somaticize their symptoms of depression or anxiety. However, when done effectively, treating behavioral health problems in primary care presents opportunities for early intervention and prevention of disabling medical and behavioral health conditions. This session will provide participants will new ways of thinking about trauma, behavioral health, and possible interventions. The session will also provide tools that can be used in a primary care setting to address behavioral health concerns.


On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1.Participants will identify some of the common manifestations of behavioral health and/or trauma in a primary care setting.

2.Participants will discuss how to apply effectively strategies to address behavioral health concerns for migrants and other underserved populations in a primary care setting.

3.Participants will identify at least two tools that can be used to address behavioral health issues in a primary care setting.

4.Participants will evaluate the impact of different strategies and tools to real‐life case presentations.
