Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH)

PeaceHealth’s Integrated Behavioral Health program follows the evidenced-based Collaborative Care Model- developed specifically for primary care settings. This model of care emphasizes a team structure which includes patient, primary care provider, behavioral health clinician, and a psychiatric consultant. The Integrated Behavioral Health team works collaboratively to identify and support patient goals using a shared plan of care. Treatment targets common mental health concerns, such as anxiety and depression, using interventions proven effective in primary care settings. 

Core Principles of the Collaborative Care Model

Patient-Centered Team Care

Primary care and behavioral health teams work together to support patient goals. Treatment is provided in the comfort of your primary care providers office, or via telehealth.

Population and Measurement-Based Care

Treatment is routinely measured and monitored in a registry to assure patients don’t fall through the cracks. When indicated, treatment plans are actively modified to support improved outcomes until patient goals are met.

Evidence-Based Care

Treatment offered is evidence-based, with proven efficacy in treating target condition. Brief interventions proven effective in primary care settings include Problem Solving Treatment, Behavioral Activation, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Referrals to program

Referrals to Integrated Behavioral Health come exclusively from patient’s primary care provider. If you or a loved is interested, please contact your primary care provider to discuss next steps. 

Billing and Insurance

Assuring access to care regardless of ability to pay is part of our mission and PeaceHealth encourages contacting Financial Services at 1-877-202-3597 to inquire further about billing, or the Financial Assistance program. As coverage varies due to many factors, including co-payments and deductibles, PeaceHealth cannot be definitive on what individual policies will cover and recommends contacting your insurance carrier directly.
