When you are hurting, and the pain isn't physical, it can be challenging to know where to go to get help.
What if, instead of just listening to your heart and lungs, your primary care doctor listened to your concerns? What if, instead of simply reading your pulse, your doctor read your expression for signs of worry?
At GBMC, we treat all of you. Being well doesn’t just mean your physical health, it's about your mental health too. By design, our doctors ask specific questions. Are you depressed? Do you feel anxious or worry continuously about anything?
If you need someone to talk to, you don't have to go far. Our partnership with Sheppard Pratt Health System means GBMC's advanced primary care centers have a full-time behavioral health consultant available right in the office to provide mental health evaluations and support in real time. No extra steps to get the help you need.
And don't worry. If you need a psychiatrist, we can make it happen. As part of your healthcare team, care coordinators work to make sure you get the most comprehensive care possible.
Your health shouldn't feel like a burden. Taking care of you is our privilege.
