Behavioral Health Optimization Program (BHOP)
A Behavioral Health Optimization Program provider is a mental health provider who is integrated into your primary care team. We provide consultation and brief intervention, not traditional psychotherapy. Our staff will document the assessment and recommendations in patient’s medical record and will not keep a separate mental health record. We also assist patients with the referral process if additional mental health is needed. We encourage and schedule follow-up appointments with your primary care manager for further assessment and intervention. We assist patients with developing and sustaining healthier lifestyle choices. We manage and track patients who have been diagnosed with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or other mental health illnesses for which a primary care manager has prescribed antidepressant medication or anxiolytic medication. During assessments, we educate about medication, treatment expectations, potential side effects and possible remedies.
