Thursday, December 27, 2012

Did you know Truman VA has a new program to improve access to behavioral health services and improve overall health? Veterans may now receive care from a Primary Care Mental Health Integration (PC-MHI) provider in primary care.
 
Why seek behavioral health services in primary care?

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms or conditions you may benefit from working with a PC-MHI staff member to help you cope better: anxiety, stress, headaches, family/relationship problems, grief, anger, diabetes, asthma, chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome, or high blood pressure.

Who is part of the team?

The Primary Care Mental Health Integration (PC-MHI) program is a national initiative to integrate care for physical and mental health concerns within primary care. PC-MHI includes care management services from an RN as well as psychotherapy services from psychologists.

Two psychologists are located within primary care and provide services by appointment and on a walk-in basis. The RN care coordinator provides services onsite and through telephone care management. Veterans can access services through their primary care clinic. Contact any primary care clinic for more information.  You may also contact the PC-MHI providers directly for more information.
