Harbor Beach Community Hospital Announces Mental Health Services Coming Fall 2018

Harbor Beach Community Hospital (HBCH) is pleased to announce they will be offering mental health services starting in the fall of 2018. There is a great need for these services in our community. According to the National Institute for Health, approximately 1 in 5 adults experience mental health issues every year (National Institute for Health). “Through the Community Health Needs Assessment and by listening to patient feedback, it became clear that we needed to increase access to mental health services on this side of the county,” said Trish VanNorman HBCH Grants Project Director.

The hospital along with partners Huron Behavioral Health, List Psychological Services, and Professional Counseling Services has completed eighteen months of planning to make these services a reality. The program is possible through grants from Michigan Health Endowment Fund, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation, and the Office of Rural Health Policy, HRSA, U.S. DHHS. Using grant funds in combination with insurance reimbursement, Harbor Beach Community Hospital will be able to meet the mental health needs of their patients. Services will include integrated behavioral health care, tele-psychiatry, and counseling.

Physician offices around the nation have become the gateway for mental health services thereby playing a critical role in identifying and treating those who are experiencing mental health issues. Integrated behavioral health will take place in the Harbor Beach Medical Clinic and the Port Hope Medical Clinic. A social worker will work alongside the primary care provider to help patients who are struggling with mental health needs. Additionally, the social worker will offer brief intervention and support for individuals with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. By integrating primary care and behavioral health, Harbor Beach Community Hospital is able to treat patients holistically. The social worker will as also be available for counseling sessions on a limited basis.

Some mental health issues require more intricate management of medication. Due to a lack of psychiatry services in our county, people in our community often travel hours to a psychiatrist. Using technology, tele-psychiatry will be offered in the Harbor Beach Medical Clinic, Port Hope Medical Clinic, Harbor Beach Specialty Clinic, and a satellite site in Bad Axe. Tele-psychiatry patients will be placed in a private room and connect with the provider through a secure high speed internet connection on a life size screen. Both child and adult psychiatry will be provided. With the growing issue of substance abuse across many communities, it is also difficult to access services to treat addictions. Substance abuse treatment will also be available via tele-health technology. Tele-psychiatry has been proven to be effective for all ages, and is already being utilized in HBCH’s Lakeview Extended Care and Rehab unit and Senior Life Solutions Clinic.

The Harbor Beach Community Hospital accepts Medicaid, Medicare, and various commercial insurances to help you meet your healthcare needs. It is advised that you check with your insurance provider regarding coverage of mental health services and referral requirements. Services will be starting in the fall of 2018. Watch for announcements regarding scheduling for services. To be placed on a call back list, contact Central Scheduling at 989-479-5024.
