Our Mission and Integrated Model

At Jordan Valley, we offer medical, dental, behavioral health and vision. Behavioral Health is integrated into all service lines.
History of Behavioral Health at JV
Jordan Valley’s philosophy is “the head is connected to the body.” We understand that mental diagnoses can impact a patient’s physical body and vice versa. Behavioral Health is a crucial component of our program.
As part of the Jordan Valley Community Health Center’s mission, we provide patients with access to behavioral health services.
Our Behavioral Health Consultants (BHCs) are part of the Jordan Valley Team and are the gatekeepers of Behavioral Health Services. BHCs see patients in Women’s Health, Pediatrics, Dental, Optical, Express Care and Family Medicine.
Once a patient has established care with a Jordan Valley provider, our Behavioral Health Consult model allows for:
• A functional assessment, given by a Behavioral Health Consultant
• A clinically appropriate plan of action including immediate and brief intervention for mental health diagnoses and behavioral health changes
• Referral to a psychologist/therapist
• Assessment for psychiatry
• Referral to specialized community services
• Referral to JV Substance Use Clinic
• Referral to JV Pain Clinic
