Toward Health Recovery and Integrated Vital Engagement (THRIVE)

THRIVE logo

Overview

This research study seeks to add to the existing, yet limited body of literature concerning integrated healthcare models to help address one of the most deleterious mental disorders, depression and selected co-occurring chronic health conditions. THRIVE is strategically positioned to design, implement, and evaluate the effectiveness of a culturally centered integrated healthcare model to address depression and selected co-morbid chronic diseases among underserved ethnically and culturally diverse adults in primary care settings.

Specific Aims

  1. Implement qualitative study which includes conducting patient focus groups & physician key informant interviews to inform the model development of a culturally-tailored integrated behavioral health intervention.
  2. To design, test, and evaluate the impact of an integrated behavioral health intervention on depression and co-occurring chronic diseases in three (3) Grady Health Systems primary care clinics.
  3. To determine where Medicaid enrollees in Region IV receive treatment for depression and examine differences between racial and ethnic groups to determine if racial health disparities in access and treatment of depression exist for Medicaid enrollees in Region IV.
