At CHP, we know that physical and mental health are closely connected. Our health care teams proactively inquire into our patients’ mental and emotional health, to ensure that the mind and body receive equal attention.
During your routine appointments, we may ask some general questions to see how you are feeling about life, family, work and play. If you are concerned about depression, anxiety, alcohol or drug use or other mental health issues, we can help immediately by referring you to a mental health professional or substance abuse counselor to support you.
CHP is a partner of the Brien Center for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, a county-wide agency serving the Berkshires. The Brien Center’s mental health professionals have offices at many of CHP’s health center sites around Berkshire County, which means we can often help you make an immediate connection with a professional on site. This means that, with your permission, we can easily confer with your mental health professional to share relevant medical information.
Your primary care provider is here to help.
