Getting Ready For Your Visit
What is Behavioral Healthcare?
Behavioral Healthcare (BH)providers help when habits, behaviors, stress, worry, or emotional concerns about physical or other life problems are interfering with your daily life and/or overall health.
What kind of health concerns do you see?
Our BH providers are able to assist patients in developing coping skills related to chronic medical conditions and we can also assist with behavioral changes related to helping you quit using tobacco, weight loss, or alcohol use. We can help you develop coping skills to manage emotional or behavioral difficulties such as anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, and stress.
Who is eligible?
This service is available to all patients within MFHC as a part of your overall health care.
What should I expect?
You can expect the BH provider to ask you questions about your symptoms and behaviors, and how they might be related to your physical health. The appointments are typically 50 minutes or less with a focus on finding solutions to what bothers you.
How is this different from Mental Health Services?
The services provided by our BH providers are short-term, solution-focused behavioral health care with opportunities for follow-up care as needed. Referrals to other professionals may be made for more traditional, ongoing, mental health services if you and the medical team feel that is best for your needs.
How do I schedule an appointment?
You can call and make an appointment with a BH provider, or you can request to see a BH provider during your medical appointment. If you would like to schedule both appointments together, we also welcome that as an option.
