CentraCare Expands Integrated Behavioral Health Services to Big Lake and Becker

Published in Media Releases

CentraCare is proud to announce the expansion of its Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) services to the Big Lake and Becker communities, furthering the commitment to providing accessible and comprehensive health care to patients.

IBH bridges the gap between mental and physical health care services for patients who are established with a primary care provider within CentraCare or those looking to establish care within the network. Now accessible in more than 30 facilities across CentraCare, IBH offers vital mental health support directly within primary and specialty care clinics.

The addition of IBH services to the Big Lake and Becker communities is a significant step forward in enhancing mental health care accessibility. Patients now have quick access to mental health support during their primary care visits. IBH providers can seamlessly join patient appointments upon request, allowing medical providers to continue caring for other patients.

Integrated Behavioral Health Psychologist Gretchen Moos, MSW, LICSW, expressed enthusiasm about the expansion, stating, “We are thrilled to offer this incredible mental health service to the members of the Big Lake and Becker communities. By integrating behavioral health services into primary care settings, we aim to improve access to care, reduce stigma, and provide holistic support to our patients.”

Individuals interested in receiving mental health support are encouraged to contact their primary care clinic. In the case of a mental health crisis, call or text the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988.
