Behavioral Health Screening Toolkit for Primary Care Physicians

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), "one in every five adults experiences a mental illness that often goes undetected." EmblemHealth supports the early detection, assessment and treatment for behavioral health issues in the primary care setting. Early detection and intervention can have a significant impact on the health outcomes and quality of life of individuals we serve. Effective screening may also help you determine when a patient might need to be referred for treatment in a behavioral health treatment setting.

EmblemHealth strongly encourages you to screen your patients for depression, anxiety and substance abuse using the free and easy-to-use tools listed in the Behavioral Health Services chapter.
