The primary care behavioral health (PCBH) integrated model involves full collaboration with Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) and Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs). In this model, BHCs and PCPs jointly plan and execute goals, develop integrated care plans, co-manage patients, and maintain shared schedules. BHCs form meaningful relationships with patients and their families for their entire life. They are embedded within the medical team and are easily accessible. Also, they help with anything and everything, as well as all ages that the clinic services. Our BHCs strive to make behavioral health care as routine and as accessible as possible.
Behavioral health relates to the connection between your behavior and your emotional and physical health. Thus, BHCs address a wide range of conditions in primary care, including emotional health concerns like depression, anxiety, and trauma, as well as physical health conditions like chronic pain, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. BHCs and patients work collaboratively to develop and implement behavioral treatment plans to improve patients’ overall functioning and quality of life.
The main goals of our integrated program are to improve communication between behavioral health and primary care providers and thereby improve care coordination. We aim to:
- Increase availability of behavioral health services within the medical model
- Provide support to the PCP in addressing patients’ behavioral health needs
- Mitigate negative impacts on physical health
