Compassion Health Care, Inc.’s Caswell Family Medical Center in Yanceyville, NC, and James Austin Health Center in Eden, NC both provide Integrated Behavioral Health Services to people of all ages.
The Integrated 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. Our philosophical standard values comprehensive wellness for patients. The program is led by Aimee Jenkins, Behavioral Health Program Director. Aimee is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Our organizational vision in implementing this program is to improve patient wellness by serving as a community resource for thorough healthcare management.
Compassion Health Care, Inc. provides high-quality care for BH 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. We are a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), so this IBH 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.
We use this model to increase your access to BH 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 under-treated 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.
