Integrated behavioral health services, delivered human to human
We believe in a holistic approach to health and wellness. With in-house psychologists and therapists embedded in nearly 20 of our primary care practices across Main Line Health, compassionate care for your behavioral health concerns is more accessible than ever.
A direct path to the behavioral health support you need
The likelihood of seeking help for behavioral health concerns—defined as mental health issues, psychiatric conditions and substance use disorders—increases significantly when the right support is readily available.
Many of our primary care practices, as well as one obstetrics and gynecological care practice, and two pain management practices, offer integrated behavioral health services. Through this team-based approach to health care, in addition to visiting with your physician, patients of these practices have direct access to on-site clinicians who specialize in treating:
- Mild to moderate depression
- Difficulty coping with chronic health conditions
- Adjusting to stressors, including caregiver stress
- Additional concerns
Our in-house clinicians* can also assess acute issues and provide guidance when more intensive treatment is needed.
* Please note that to access an in-house clinician, you must be a patient of the physician's practice.
Easy access to behavioral health care from your doctor's office
With one in five adults and one in six youth experiencing behavioral health concerns in any given year, easy access to the care you need is more important than ever.
Our in-house behavioral health clinicians include psychologists, therapists, doctoral psychology residents and post-doctoral psychology fellows. Team members are specific to each individual practice.
Patients of practices offering integrated behavioral health services are eligible for eight to ten visits with a behavioral health clinician—30 minutes per session—each year.
A broad spectrum of behavioral health
Integrated behavioral health services are considered the lowest intensity treatment option on the behavioral health spectrum, and may sometimes serve as a bridge to more intensive treatment. For individuals in need of additional support, Main Line Health provides a complete continuum of care to address mental health issues, psychiatric conditions and substance use disorders—mild, moderate and severe.
From specialized services for women at two wellness centers, to our inpatient and outpatient treatment centers for substance use disorders and mental health concerns, to our inpatient psychiatric unit, expert care for you and your loved ones is close to home.
Taking the next step
If you are already seeing a primary care physician in a practice that offers integrated behavioral health services, simply talk with your doctor about scheduling a visit with an in-house clinician.
