Physical Health-Behavioral Health (PH-BH) Efforts
Your physical, emotional, and behavioral health are all linked. When you boost your mental well-being, your physical well-being can improve, too. And your physical health can improve if you take care of your mental health needs.
Some mental health issues are:
- Alcohol or substance use.
These can occur at the same time as and even worsen physical problems like:
- Heart disease.
This is why PerformCare would like to talk to the managed care organization (MCO) that covers your physical health. Together, we will make sure you get both the physical and behavioral health care you need. We will focus on your wellness and recovery together. We will connect you with help in your neighborhood.
If you would like us to start working with your MCO, please call PerformCare Member Services. Our staff will help you get in touch with a Care Manager.
Natural supports toolkits
For individuals with a behavioral health illness, these toolkits help their natural supports understand the link between physical and behavioral health.
Natural supports can be family members, such as spouses, parents or guardians, friends, partners, neighbors, and paid helpers. Natural supports play a key role in the support of people with a behavioral health illness.
