Behavioral Health

The Behavioral Health Department at Fair Haven Community Health Center believes integrated behavioral healthcare is essential for high quality primary care.  We offer psychiatric evaluations, medication management, short-term individual therapy, psychotherapy groups, and in school counseling services. The majority of our behavioral health clinicians speak English and Spanish to meet the needs of our patients and their families.

Our goal in the Behavioral Health Department is to coordinate care with FHCHC’s primary care providers to provide high-quality healthcare. Currently, all adult and adolescent patients at FHCHC are screened for depression during their primary healthcare visits and referred to behavioral health services if needed. Adult patients are screened for substance abuse following the SBIRT model (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment) by Integrated Behavioral Health Clinicians.Our behavioral health patient navigators work to integrate care on the medical floors by connecting our patients to the behavioral health department during their primary care visits.
