Collaborative Care

The collaborative care model identifies patients with depression and anxiety and offers treatment within the primary care offices.  Behavioral health clinicians work closely with the primary care physicians and the consulting psychiatrists to offer both medication and a variety of therapy approaches.  This is an expanding area with plans for collaborative care within four different primary care offices, ultimately staffing throughout the majority of the primary care locations.
