Here at Family Healthcare, we believe in the integration of the mind and the body. You cannot effectively treat one without treating the other. Integrated Care is “the care that results from a practice team of primary care and behavioral health clinicians, working together with patients and families, using a systematic and cost-effective approach to provide patient-centered care for a defined population” (Peek et al, 2013).
Recognizing this, we have an integrative mindset that will allow a mental health professional to visit with you when you come in to visit with your medical provider. “This care may address mental health and substance abuse conditions, health behaviors (including their contribution to chronic medical illnesses), life stressors and crises, stress-related physical symptoms, and ineffective patterns of health care utilization” (Peek et al, 2013).
If possible, we’ll work with you therapeutically during your medical visits. If not, we can help you find additional resources in the community. Looking forward to visiting with you soon!
