What we do
Our BHIP Social Work offers short-term cognitive and behavioral based counseling and "bridging" to community resources.
Our BHIP psychiatrist offers medication consultations and reviews.
BHIP does not provide long-term or crisis mental health care.
BHIP SW desk is in the North (Team A) hallway cubical
When to contact
Consult with a BHIP social worker and/or GIMC social worker for questions about mental health resources and referrals in community, and to inquire if a patient is appropriate for the BHIP model of treatment. BHIP is not an ideal treatment model for everyone, and we want to assist patients in knowing their options and getting connected to most appropriate mental health care.
Residents can consult with Dr. Chang (BHIP psychiatrist) on medication recommendations or combinations for patients.
