Behavioral Health Psychiatry

The psychiatric services team provides a psychiatric evaluation for the diagnosis and pharmacological treatment of many mental illnesses, including depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, mood disorders associated with substance abuse and dependency, insomnia, ADD/ADHD, disruptive behavior disorder, autistic disorders and other psychiatric conditions.

The psychiatric services team works closely with medical family therapists to provide access to behavioral health resources for patients coming in at every clinical entry point.

The psychiatric services team includes four full-time psychiatrists, a full-time psychiatric nurse practitioner, one office manager and three psychiatric care coordinators.

Telemedicine may be used to improve access to care. Psychiatric services provide assessment, evaluation and treatment with patients face-to-face or through telemedicine, with a major focus on medication management. Psychiatrists provide limited therapy on a case-by-case basis. Patients are seen as a result of referrals from internal providers, nursing and other agencies, both tribal and non-tribal. Referrals are received electronically, by phone or in person.
