Patients seen at the General Internal Medical Center at UWMC--Roosevelt have access to the Behavioral Health Integration Program (BHIP), an innovative, evidence-based behavioral health care program that takes a patient-centered approach to treating mental health conditions.
BHIP uses the Collaborative Care model for treating common mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety in primary care. In BHIP, UW psychiatrists work as clinic-based psychiatric consultants who support the mental health care provided by primary care providers and care managers as well as providing direct patient consultations. The result is coordinated, effective, and convenient mental health care.
BHIP is offered in all of the UW Neighborhood Clinics and clinics at Harborview Medical Center, as well as at the General Internal Medicine Center.
