It's not easy to find timely mental health care services! In our community it is common to experience long wait times for therapy or mental health medication, often weeks and sometimes months. Mental health provider shortages add to the challenge.
The Collaborative Care Model is an evidence-based, effective way to integrate mental health care into the primary care setting, which can improve your ability to get crucial mental health care when you need it.
The Collaborative Care Model utilizes a team approach: Your primary care provider, a behavioral health care manager, and a consulting psychiatrist. All are trained to provide specialized medication and counseling interventions to help meet your needs.
