When patients seek care at a primary care office within Community Care Physicians, they receive care for what brought them there, but they also get an additional service: access to integrated behavioral health. Traditionally, behavioral health issues have been treated separately from physical health issues. This distinction, now, doesn’t always exist. Our mind and body are connected, and your care should reflect that.
Sometimes when we hear "behavioral health", we only think of depression, substance abuse, anxiety and the like. While those are part of it, behavioral health is much broader. Conditions like back pain, chronic illnesses, and obesity often have a behavioral health component. When care for both the mind and body is connected, patient outcomes and satisfaction improve.
Community Care Physicians offers access to licensed mental health counselors and clinical social workers as Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs) in most of our practices. These Behavioral Health Providers assist our patients with mental health issues, stress, coping, behavior and lifestyle change, and the behavioral management of chronic disease. At this time, all BHCs are adapting to the demands and changes COVID-19 has brought our way to maintain and enhance our services.
We now offer behavioral health services using telemedicine, or video visits using your smartphone, tablet, or computer. It’s secure and doesn’t require any app or software downloads. We also offer assistance to patients who as experiencing stressors of any kind in response to the pandemic.
