Helping you help others

Primary Care Provider Toolkit

As a primary care provider (PCP), you are probably faced with helping your patients with their mental health. In fact, most mental health treatment is provided by primary care providers, in primary care settings. At times, patients will simply tell you that they have a behavioral health concern or diagnosis, but often it is difficult to tell. We believe that mental health is important, not just because it affects a person’s overall well-being, but also because when it goes undetected and untreated, it often gets worse. Untreated or inappropriately treated mental health concerns negatively impact a person’s quality of life, can interfere with proper management of co-occurring medical treatment, and can lead to increased utilization of the healthcare system, including frequent and often lengthy primary care visits. That’s why we’ve created a PCP toolkit.
