primary care picture

The integration of Primary Care in a Behavioral Health Care setting refers to the intentional, ongoing, and committed coordination and collaboration between all providers treating the individual. Providers recognize and appreciate the interdependence they have with each other to positively impact healthcare outcomes. The overall goal of this integration is to improve and promote overall health within the general population. SCLHSA recognizes the need for patients to take care of both their physical and behavioral health needs. The mind and the body cannot be separated; symptoms and illness in one impacts the health of the other. Both physical health and behavioral health benefit from prevention efforts, screening tests, routine check-ups, and treatment. Our philosophy of holistic care recognizes and respects the role of individuals and their families in the health care experience and we strive to provide our patients with person centered treatment that reflects their total mind and body needs.
