Caswell Family Medical Center in Yanceyville, NC provides Integrated Behavioral Health Services to people of all ages.
The CFMC Behavioral Health Program applies an evidence-based approach to integrate behavioral health into primary care. This model incorporates mental health treatment into a traditional medical visit. CMFC’s philosophical standard values comprehensive wellness for patients. CFMC’s Integrated Behavioral Health program is led by Tania Hyppolite, Behavioral Health Program Director. Tania is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. CFMC’s organizational vision in implementing this program is to improve patient wellness by serving as a community resource for thorough healthcare management.
CFMC provides high-quality care for Behavioral Health patients of all ages, including:
- Common mental health diagnoses such as Anxiety, Depression, ADD/ADHD, Bipolar, and PTSD
- Substance Abuse Evaluations and Counseling
- NARCAN/Naloxone Distribution
Integrated Behavioral Health Care simply means that a person’s primary health care and mental health care are combined in one setting. CFMC is a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), so the Integrated Behavioral Health model only makes sense to us.
Integrated Care knocks down the barrier of having a fragmented health delivery system with poor outcomes, higher costs associated with health, and the duplication of services provided.
At CFMC, we use this model to increase your access to behavioral health services and to reduce any stigmas associated with seeking the help you truly need.
Addressing the whole person, both physically and mentally, is vital for positive outcomes as well as cost-effective care. The consequences for untreated or undertreated mental illnesses and substance abuse disorders can lead to serious physical health, which in turn leads to earlier death, often up to 30 years earlier than others from conditions that quite possibly could have been treated by a primary care provider.
