Behavioral health toolkit

Support and resources for PCPs, members and more

Most behavioral health treatment is provided by primary care providers (PCPs). It may be difficult for PCPs to thoroughly assess a patient’s mental health and substance use issues and concerns. That’s why we’ve created this toolkit: To help PCPs and members find the resources they need.
Behavioral health affects a person’s overall well-being, and when undetected and untreated, it often worsens. Untreated or inappropriately treated behavioral health concerns can:

  • Negatively impact a person’s quality of life
  • Interfere with proper management of co-occurring medical treatment
  • Lead to increased utilization of the health care system, including frequent and often lengthy primary care visits
