Primary and Behavioral Health Integration

Description of Services:

The CYH Project serves as the “Health Home” for those who receive services at Integrated Healthcare Systems by offering primary health services and wellness activities. This service structure provides follow-up medical care coordination, lab testing, and medical screenings. 

The program upholds the values of educated choice-making, recovery-focused and person-centered therapy, and integration of evidence-based practices into standard medical practice. A person-centered, integrated approach to the medical care of people with behavioral health illnesses is the core of the CYH Project’s service delivery.

Our Goals:

  • Increase the provision of a coordinated range of medical, self-improvement, interpersonal, supportive, and    rehabilitated programs that are tailored to the wants and preferences of the individual.
  • To enhance the physical well-being of individuals with severe mental illness who run the risk of having behavioral health and primary care issues co-occur.
  • To support those who are actively participating in their health and wellness.
  • To aid with the coordination of behavioral, specialist, and general healthcare treatments.
  • To improve individual and family participation in the planning process for rehabilitation.

Supports & Services:

  • Primary Medical Care – A primary care team will be available 5 days per week. Focus is on assessing, diagnosing and reducing the symptoms of medical issues, and making referrals to specialty care and wellness activities.
  • Care Coordination – Every effort will be made to coordinate our member medical appointment with ongoing psychiatric, rehab, and case management services, as well as assisting individuals with linkage with specialty care services in the community when needed.
  • Peer Support Wellness – The peer support specialist assists persons with their wellness by providing individual coaching and support to implement change strategies to improve healthy living habits. Smoking cessation, healthy eating habits, exercise, and healthy living groups will be scheduled throughout the year for participants in the program.
  • Integrated Services – Primary services will be coordinated with outpatient services, and staff will consult to assure integration of the medical, and wellness activities with the behavioral health services.
