In September 2013, the Bread for the City primary care clinic launched an integrated-care behavioral health program in order to fill gaps in access to mental health services for our patients.
The full-time behavioral health specialist collaborates with the primary care clinic’s four medical providers to recognize, manage, and treat patients’ chronic behavioral health conditions, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse, and chronic pain.
Through short, solution-focused interventions, offered in conjunction with the primary care visit, the behavioral health specialist helps patients gain insight about their mental health and socio-emotional well-being; provides psycho education, delivers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness-based coping strategies to help patients manage their symptoms and become full participants in their own treatment and recovery.

(Or FQHC –and brace yourself for more acronyms to come, as this is a blog post about the federal government).
