Behavioral Health

Good healthcare involves addressing not only physical health, but also the habits, thoughts and emotions of each person. Bay Area Community Health offers flexible and personalized support to achieve our patients’ behavioral health goals. Our providers work in partnership with patients, offering consultation and assessments through individual and group sessions. Behavioral Health specialists collaborate with primary care providers to focus on well-being.

Behavioral health services encompass services that address both mental health and substance abuse. Mental health services include: prevention, assessment, diagnosis, treatment/intervention, and follow-up of mental health conditions and disorders (e.g., depression, anxiety, attention deficit and disruptive behavior disorders). Substance abuse services are screening, diagnosis, and treatment services for substance use disorders (e.g., abuse of alcohol, tobacco, prescription drugs).
