Historically, psychology and medicine have led separate lives. Physicians have treated the body while problems of the mind were often seen as separate. Today, there is a tremendous amount of research suggesting that one’s mental health can have a significant role in the development of certain health problems. Furthermore, mental outlook and psychological factors can have a significant impact on the course and recovery from certain diseases. In light of this, a shift in thinking has emerged where the mind and body are seen as inseparable. In the words of Sir William Osler, “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.” Addressing the psychological needs of your patients isn’t just a good idea, but a necessary component of the treatment itself. Integrating psychological services in your practice can increase satisfaction for both you and your patients by:
Identifying early signs of emotional distress to help direct clinical care and decision making before a crisis emerges
Providing effective & practical solutions for you and your patients
Saving you time and energy so you can focus on what you do best
Increasing treatment adherence and health-promoting behavior to improve the physical and emotional well being of your patients
On-site consultation is available in your medical practice to promote integrated care and help reduce the stigma of specialized mental health services. Consultation is provided to primary care physicians, hospitals, health centers,
nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Crisis intervention services are available.
