Behavioral Health

When you come to HealthSource, it is routine for your Primary Care Provider (PCP) to include a Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC) in your care plan. Many medical conditions require lifestyle changes, and a BHC can be an important tool in effectively making those changes and receiving the best outcomes from your treatment at HealthSource.

In addition, you may ask your PCP for help from the BHC anytime you need it. There are a variety of behaviors that can stand in the way of your overall mental health and wellbeing. Our Ohio behavioral health specialists are here to help you navigate those behaviors and live the life you want.  

What Behavioral Health Consultants Do

HealthSource of Ohio offers Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) services. PCBH services are different from other behavioral health services. Our Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs) are a regular part of your primary care team, working closely with your Primary Care Provider (PCP) to help you improve your overall health and support you in living a meaningful life.

At Healthsource, it is considered routine care for your PCP to include the BHC in your care. We also encourage you to ask your PCP for the BHC’s help at any time.

What is a BHC?

Our BHCs have expertise in how behaviors, thoughts, and emotions impact your health and wellness. They use behavioral science to help you and your PCP with any health-related problem or goal. They can help you do more of the things that are important to you in life, even when your health or other challenges make it harder for you.

How do BHC visits work?

The BHC can see you any time you or your PCP request it. Whenever possible, the BHC will see you while you are in the office to see your PCP, but the BHC can do telehealth visits too. BHC visits usually last 15-30 minutes. During that time, the BHC will get a “snapshot” of your daily life and of the problem, and then they will help you make a plan to address it. You may need only one BHC visit for any given problem, or you may schedule a follow-up visit, just like when you see your PCP.

What can the BHC help with?

The BHC can help with almost anything! Some common problems are listed in the right-hand column, but if you are wondering whether the BHC could help with something else, just ask your PCP.
