Mental Health

IBHS’ medical clinics provide Behavioral Health Specialists as part of its Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) program to help patients cope with life’s challenges. Our experienced and dedicated BHI staff help by providing counseling, health education, referrals and other support as needed. Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) services are part of your medical visit. Your BH Specialist can arrange a follow-up visit or two if this will help.

 

If approved for additional counseling services based on medical need, The Wholeness & Enrichment Center (WE Center) offers psychotherapy services for you by experienced and dedicated professionals who are committed to providing quality care and assisting you through difficult times. The WE Center provides services only for existing Health Center patients.

 

For example, we help people:

  • Deal with depression
  • Reduce stress and worry
  • Improve relationship skills
  • Enhance parenting skills
  • Adjust to life changes (e.g. divorce)
  • Manage their anger more effectively
  • Cope with trauma, grief, and loss
  • Manage symptoms of mental illness
  • Build self-esteem

 

PAYMENT

The WE Center accepts Medi-Cal, Medicare, IEHP, and Molina; other forms of insurance may be accepted (depending upon eligibility). We also offer a sliding fee scale for persons without insurance (documentation of income must be provided).

In addition to treatment, the WE Center provides presentations to the community about Mental Health. Our hope is to educate local residents and to network with other agencies to diminish the stigma associated with seeking help for psychological and emotional difficulties and during times of crisis.
