Your Well-Being Matters to Us
Good healthcare involves paying attention not only to physical health, but also stress, emotions, habits, and behaviors, and how they interact with your medical conditions.
Our Behavioral Health Consultants can help you get the information, skills, and support you need to feel better, regain control of your life, and live more fully.
Our Behavioral Health Consultants can help you manage:
- Persistent pain
- Substance and/or drug dependence
- Elevated blood pressure or cholesterol
- Smoking cessation
- Memory problems
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Sexual dysfunction
- Problems related to pregnancy
- Weight management
This is not an all-exhaustive list. Our Behavioral Health Consultants can provide care and support for any condition that has a behavioral health component.
Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs) are licensed psychologists, counselors, or clinical social workers who specialize in helping people develop skills and make changes to improve their overall health and manage their health conditions.
BHCs are a part of your patient-centered care team at NHC and work closely with your other providers to give you comprehensive care. They provide brief, non-medication-targeted interventions for a wide range of emotional and behavioral conditions.
Behavioral health visits usually last 20-30 minutes. Sometimes patients may get what they need in one visit, and other times patients may see the Behavioral Health Consultant for several follow-up visits to address patient emotional and behavioral health needs. You may receive information about connecting to services in the community such as long term mental health services. BHCs are not psychiatrists and cannot prescribe medication. Please consult with your primary care provider or pharmacist about accessing behavioral health services at NHC.
Our care teams provide high-quality whole-person care, supporting each patients' unique mental, emotional, and physical health needs. The care you receive at NHC will help you get healthy and stay healthy with collaborative solutions right for you and your particular situation, regardless of your residence status, citizenship status, income, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, or religion.
