Over the past 4 years, Altarum has been at the forefront of efforts to address behavioral health issues in the United States, especially those related to the continuing integration of mental health and addiction service systems and the concurrent integration of behavioral health with physical health systems under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Altarum works with federal, state, and local governments, as well as national and community organizations, to help build a national system of care that focuses on prevention, treatment, and recovery, actively involves the individuals in need of services and their families, and provides multiple services to meet specific needs.

Altarum’s BBehavioral Health Technical Assistance Center advances systems of care that promote empowerment and choice, foster resilience, and facilitate mental health and addiction recovery for individuals, families, and communities. It specializes in behavioral health policy analysis, health services research, evaluation, and technical assistance (TA) and ensures that these efforts are based on promising, recovery-oriented, and culturally competent practices.
