Behavioral Health

Many aspects affect a person's overall health. LCH Behavioral Health Consultants (BHC's) provide on-site behavioral health support and resources for LCH patients.

BHC's meet with members to answer questions and provide information on topics like depression, anxiety and other mental illness, as well as behaviors affecting health.

At each visit, both the social assistance and health center teams screen members for depression. BHC’s are available to check in with the member and provide further evaluation, interventions, and recommendations for additional treatment if necessary.

Many behaviors affect overall health, such as trouble sleeping, drug and alcohol use, smoking cessation, parenting skills, relationship issues, domestic violence, weight loss or gain, exercise, etc. The BHCs work with members to explore their behaviors and create action steps on how to manage or adjust behaviors toward more healthy choices.
