Integrated behavioral health consultants (known as BHCs) work in collaboration with primary care providers and interdisciplinary primary care medical team to improve the overall health of the populations served at community health centers. BHCs provide screening, consultation, brief evidence based psychological interventions and treatment to manage common emotional health issues and health behaviors as presented in the primary care clinic (e.g., sleep concerns, tobacco cessation, diabetes, depression, anxiety, substance use disorders). BHCs work via a stepped care approach to improve patient functioning using modalities appropriate to the primary care setting, and have knowledge on the specialty behavioral health services located within the community to promote health across the continuum.
