I'm Not A Behavioral Health Provider, But My Primary Care Patient Needs One: MORE Brief Interventions and Practical Treatment Strategies for Non-Behavioral Health Providers

Casey Clardy, PhD, MDiv

Room 5

Sold on the value of integrated behavioral health services within your primary care clinic? What happens when there’s not enough behavioral health providers to go around, or you haven’t been able to hire any yet? Many care team members (including primary care providers) find themselves ill-equipped, under-trained, and unsure of how to best identify, treat, and manage behavioral health concerns within the fast-paced nature of primary care. This session is geared toward educating and equipping multidisciplinary care team members without specialized behavioral health training to effectively deliver brief interventions and adopt practical treatment strategies. For those who attended last year's session, new content will be presented.
