Mental Health Services:
An Important Part of Primary Care

University Hospitals utilizes a multidisciplinary team model of primary care called Advanced Primary Care (APC) through which primary care providers cooperate with other UH healthcare professionals to manage all aspects of your health – including current and long-term mental, physical, functional and financial facets.

For the mental health facet of the APC model, we embed licensed social workers from our UH Behavioral Health Institute in our primary care offices to help recognize and treat mild to moderate behavioral health issues on-site whenever possible. These social workers also help with navigation from primary care to behavioral health hubs, where patients can get more specialized treatment if needed.
