Integrated Behavioral Health

At MyMichigan Health we believe physical and emotional health are equally important and strongly connected. It is our mission to provide greater access to behavioral/mental health services within your primary care office.

What is Integrated Behavioral Health

Is a team approach including a Behavioral Health Therapist and often times a Clinical Social Worker or Psychologist located in the primary care office who can work hand-and-hand and partner with your medical care team. The therapist can introduce therapy during an office visit, make a phone call to you to establish care, set-up in-office or virtual therapy sessions or respond to a crisis.

By actively addressing multiple aspects of your health within the primary care office, patient care can be less fragmented and more focused on addressing your “total health care needs.”

Therapists Can Assist With

  • Providing short-term evidence-based therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy, problem solving therapy, interpersonal counseling, behavioral activation and motivational interviewing.
  • Conducting a review of your behavioral health information.
  • Providing education about your specific behavioral health concerns.
  • Helping you understand medications prescribed by your provider for behavioral health concerns.
  • Working with you to create personal goals and action plans to make changes to improve emotional well-being.
  • Connecting you to community resources for behavioral health support.

What Services Can You Expect

  • Immediate interventions to assist with patients attending provider appointments who are experiencing a crisis.
