The program is made possible through federal funding, administered by the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services.

Kentucky Integrated Care was established in September 2017. Embedded within Seven Counties Services, it serves the following counties in Kentucky, which surround the Louisville metropolitan area: Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, and Trimble counties. The program was launched as a five-year project to synchronize primary care with behavioral healthcare. This mission was implemented by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services after the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) identified a substantial need to improve adults' physical health status with mental illness and those with co-occurring substance use disorders. We provide co-located and combined services that foster an all-inclusive healthy home through the coordination of care and collaboration within clinical practice.
Self-care: This is a topic that we who work in the mental health / social services fields talk a lot about, but perhaps neglect to act on in our own lives, especially during times when we feel pulled to be available and supportive to our clients, our family, and friends.
