Integrated medical and behavioral/mental health care means that your physical health can affect your mental health and mental health concerns can affect your physical health. Treating both together results in significantly improved physical and behavioral health outcomes. At NFP, behavioral health staff are only a few steps away from the medical provider, right there when needed as a guiding hand for patients struggling with emotional issues. In order to make sure we are providing the behavioral health services that you need, we ask that you see your primary care provider at least three times before receiving a referral.
NFP’s team of licensed social workers and licensed professional clinical counselors have extensive education and training that qualifies them to help you deal with emotional issues and difficult life situations including:
• Physical and sexual abuse
• Alcohol and drug abuse/addiction
• Depression, anxiety and mood problems
• Women’s health
• Relationship/family problems
• School or work issues
• Caring for family members
• Illness (including chronic conditions like diabetes)
• Sexual orientation/gender identity
Other members of the behavioral health team include nursing and psychiatry. Our psychiatric specialists work with you, your primary care provider and your talk therapist to evaluate if medication is needed to help treat difficulties you are having. Our behavioral health staff is dedicated to doing what is best for you, identifying problems and helping you to work on them. If you need additional, more specialized services, we will help you get to what you need. We have strong relationships with other providers of specialty services, so we can refer you outside of NFP for the best help available depending on your individual situation. We won’t just give you a name and phone number to call. We’ll be involved in the process, ensuring you are referred where you will get the care you need most.
