Behavioral Health Navigator
In collaboration with community clinics and resource centers, the Northwest Community Healthcare, Behavioral Health Navigator (BHN) is available to persons seeking assistance in finding mental health services. The BHN provides a flow of psychosocial information to the patient’s clinical team, assuring integration of coordinated services within health center operations. Additionally, the Behavioral Health Navigator working with a volunteer physician provides psychosocial services that enhance patient capacity and their opportunity to manage behavioral health risks and their behavioral health conditions in order to empower patients to successfully navigate health and social service systems. Patients are referred directly to the BHN by community clinics, NCH and collaborative partners.
