Integrated Care

The Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine systematically coordinates care to identify, assess, and counsel individuals with complex medical and psychosocial needs.

We also assist in the transitioning of adolescents and young adults into adult healthcare.

This patient centered approach integrates services, care, and support for persons with comorbid health, mental health, and substance abuse problems. This approach also includes seamless linkage to relevant resources and additional supports in their community.

Integrating mental health, substance abuse, and primary care services produces the best outcomes and proves the most effective approach to caring for people with multiple healthcare needs.

Our staff is guided by the Integrated Healthcare Model which supports behavioral health needs of children, adolescents, and transitional-age persons 10 to 26 years old who are at risk for mental illness, substance abuse, and suicide. These young people are among the least likely to seek continuous help.

Our team members encompass multiple disciplines and include social workers, psychologists, and behavioral health specialists. We use a team-based approach, working closely with the medical providers in the Adolescent & Young Adult Medicine Clinic who provide primary or specialty adolescent care and have had training in behavioral health.

To get connected with our therapy services, please call 412-692-6677. All clients must be seen by one of our medical providers prior to outpatient services. The initial appointment will be in person at our clinic with options for continued in person or telehealth options for future appointments.
