COLLABORATIVE CARE

INTEGRATING MIND AND BODY FOR BETTER HEALTH

TrueNorth Wellness Services is partnering with Family First Health to provide behavioral health services  and cognitive behavioral therapy as part of routine care. This integrated mindset and approach breaks down barriers to achieve better health outcomes for each patient.

In its early stages at Family First Health’s George Street center in York, this partnership shows that a cohesive and melded approach can deliver improved whole health and wellness by offering comprehensive and accessible primary, behavioral health, cognitive behavioral therapy and wellness services together.

Through Collaborative Care, a behavioral health consultant works on site at the primary care center to follow up on behavioral health issues identified through a patient health questionnaire administered at each visit.

Different from traditional approaches, Family First Health and TrueNorth Wellness Services are leading the way in changing how total wellness should be evolving both in practitioner approach and patient mindset.

Our partnership establishes a more consistent model to best utilize primary care provider skills without adding burden, remove associated stigma or fear among patients with specialized referrals, and eliminate additional barriers to treatment.
