Integrated Care for Adults with Behavioral Health Problems
ETSU Health understands that physical and emotional health care are interconnected, and that good health care attends to your physical, mental, social and behavioral needs. Many of our clinics integrate Behavioral Health Consultants, who are licensed professionals trained to understand, identify and treat behavioral, social and emotional aspects to health and disease. BHCs work closely with referring physicians to help patients manage many different concerns.

Why ETSU Health?
At the Quillen College of Medicine, integrated behavioral health is at the forefront of innovation in academic medicine. ETSU’s Institute for Integrated Behavioral Health is working with physicians to ensure that behavioral health is accessible in every primary care clinic in the ETSU Health network. By introducing behavioral health consultants to primary care settings throughout the region, residents can receive the expert care they deserve without having to schedule another appointment.
The whole health approach allows a primary care physician and behavioral health consultant to work closely with one another, providing patients with a more thorough solution for their concerns that connect the body and mind. Our primary care teams are helping patients in the region get healthier by developing creative treatment plans that combine medical and behavioral solutions. This isn’t specialized work in a special office; it's a new way of practicing primary care. Additionally, it's available to any patient with an appointment at one of our participating clinics.
