Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) Services provide patients either same-day or quick access services to address behavioral/mental health concerns. BHI is different than traditional services because of its accessibility as well as its treatment model. Services are brief with typical session times being 30 minutes and limited to 6-8 sessions. If further intervention is needed, the Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC) would refer to another member of our Behavioral Health team.
Possible referrals to the BHC may include but not limited to:
- Anger Management
- Behavior Problems
- Chronic Pain
- End of Life Issues
- Family Preventative Health/Parenting
- Health behaviors that contribute to chronic illness
- Healthy Eating
- Medication Adherence
- Relationships/life stressors and crises (not marriage/couples counseling)
- Sleep Problems
- Stress/ stress-related physical symptoms
- Substance Misuse (Patients with active substance use disorders should also be referred to a SUD provider.)
- Tobacco Cessation
- Weight Management
