At Community Medical Centers, we believe that treating our patients’ behavioral health concerns are an essential component of providing superior primary care services. The Behavioral Health Service offers assistance when habits, behaviors, stress, worry, or emotional concerns about physical or other life problems are interfering with a person’s daily life and/or overall health.
We have a team of Behavioral Health Clinicians who work closely with our Primary Care Providers to help patients manage the physical, behavioral, and emotional aspects of their health. CMC uses an ‘all doors’ or no ‘wrong door’ policy to access behavioral health services for patients. To lower barriers to services all CMC’s Behavioral Health Clinicians are prepared for, and adept in, engaging patients in ‘on-the-fly’ assessment and making rapid solution-focused interventions and support.
CMC provides a broad spectrum of mental health services including medication management, and professional counseling for couples, individuals, families, children and adolescents.
Behavioral Health Clinicians can assist patients with:
- Other Chronic Medical Conditions, including Asthma, Diabetes, and Hypertension
- a variety of health and mental health concerns
Behavioral Health Clinicians provide short-term, solution-focused individual therapy sessions that are culturally sensitive and trauma-informed. They can also help link patients with various community resources, as needed.
Most CMC clinics have a Behavioral Health Clinician on site. Patients may speak with their Primary Care Provider or contact their local CMC clinic for more information about this service, and to schedule an appointment with a clinician.
