Behavioral Health integration into Primary Care is an area of focus in our Community Health effort. A key component t our "Thrive by 5" initiative is that every child aged 0 to 5 years is seen by a pediatric psychologist at every well-child visit. Our goal is to strengthen child and family functioning by focusing on prevention and addressing behavioral concerns as they are emerging. This focus is uniquely distinct from other models of behavioral health integration as it provides universal care focused on optimizing development and behavioral health. The successful candidates will be part of a cohesive and engaged multidisciplinary team in two of our primary care clinical settings, Hopple Street Neighborhood Clinic and Primary Care Clinic. We follow the Health Steps model and psychologists are integral to training primary care residents.
