During the stay we provide integrative services to end their homelessness and connect them to support services in the community.

Integrated Care

Circle the City’s approach to primary healthcare encompasses behavioral health screening and intervention as a part of everyday, routine primary care. Each care team at Circle the City includes a Behavioral Health Consultant who, together with the Primary Care Provider, offer the following interventions to assist the patient in meeting their physical and behavioral health goals:

  • Behavioral Health Screenings
  • Assessments
  • Behavior change activation
  • Self-Management education

The Behavioral Health Consultant acts as an educator to the medical staff and patient alike and often assists the Primary Care Provider in making accurate diagnosis related to a patient’s behavioral health. This team-based approach to integrated primary care removes the stigma often associated with behavioral health care and increases engagement and care plan success of the patient.
