    Behavioral Health
    Some of the clinicians at Professional Counseling Services are currently being educated to offer behavioral care solutions to patients with chronic medical conditions that have a behavioral component such as type II diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, and other stress-related health issues.

    Considerable research has shown that more beneficial outcomes occur when primary care physicians coordinate patient care with mental health professionals with a strong behavioral medicine knowledge base. Obviously, if people are managing their emotions and behavior in a more conscious and healthy manner, various medical conditions could more effectively be treated.

    The use of specific computer programs and resources will also be incorporated. The integration of behavioral health with primary care medicine is very exciting and is on the way!
