Integrated Behavioral Health

Integrated behavioral health at Interior Community Health Center can help address and better manage physical and mental health concerns you or loved ones may experience. Our staff can help you develop self-management skills, create a healthy lifestyle, and manage stress.

Our integrated behavioral health team supports our established medical patients with the following:

      • Tobacco cessation
      • Mild depression or anxiety
      • Chronic stress
        • Weight management
        • Certain chronic conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic lung conditions, and others
        • Treatment resources for drug or alcohol abuse and complex mental health conditions
        • Resources for food insecurity, employment opportunities and housing
        • Insurance and navigating medical care

Our behavioral health team meets with you during your routine medical visit and provides screening, brief counseling, and resource referrals. Additional counseling can be scheduled with one of our licensed counselors. See our counseling page for more information. 

When necessary, we will refer you to one of our community partners for complex mental illness
treatment, prescriptions for certain medications, formal drug and alcohol assessments, or to
complete court assessments for anger management. We are not a rehabilitation site, but we can help you coordinate your care as you navigate the local healthcare system. 

Let our caring and supportive team assist you in improving you or your family’s mental and physical wellbeing. Schedule an appointment with us today.


What does food, employment, and housing have to do with healthcare?

Food, employment, and housing (as well as clothing, utilities, phone service, transportation, childcare, home safety, and many more) can have serious and long-term effects on your health. These concerns are called social drivers of health. People who struggle with these resources often also struggle with accessing healthcare, because of costs or because it just becomes a lower priority due to so many other stressors. It's hard to thrive when you're worried about paying for basic necessities!
