We offer supportive behavioral health referrals at Holyoke Health. As part of your health team, your primary care provider will speak with you and discuss your need for mental health support and bring in the behavioral health referral specialist. The specialist will speak with you to see what your needs are and work with you to schedule an appointment with the appropriate health specialist.
These include group mental health services, individual, substance abuse services, home visits, and individual case management. In addition, the referral specialist assesses your insurance status, housing, and food security and makes additional referrals when needed. The referral specialist will then follow up to see if you are enrolled with your provider and if you need any assistance making or maintaining appointments.
