Description

The future of health care is caring for the totality of a person's health, integrating physical health with behavioral health because we know that behavioral patterns are the strongest determinants for good health. Therefore, our goal is to provide health care where the connection between physical and mental healthcare is seamless. Mental Health Partners collaborates on this program with Clinica Family Health Services, Salud Family Health Family Health Services, and Dental Aid. This model of care stretches the boundaries of traditional primary care and traditional mental healthcare and as a result MHP, along with its partners, is seen a leader in the State of Colorado for implementing this cutting edge program. An integrated clinic offering both medical and dental care is open at the Ryan Wellness Center , 1000 Alpine, in Boulder.
