Increasing administrative responsibilities due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Embedding behavioral health within primary care or select secondary care practices expands the services a patient can receive. By bringing medical and psychosocial services together with primary care, the team is better able to meet both the mental and general health needs of the patient. The integration of behavioral health professionals into the primary care team provides a more effective and efficient mechanism to address patient behavioral and mental health needs. Embedding behavioral health within primary care expands the services a patient can receive during their regular primary care appointments. By bringing medical and psychosocial services together, the team is better able to conveniently and consistently meet both the general and mental health needs of their patients.
