Siskiyou Community Health Center employs an integrated collaborative healthcare model, providing both medical and behavioral health services under one roof. Our team offers comprehensive strategies and a problem-focused, solutions-oriented menu of services to address emotional, social, cognitive, and behavioral well-being for registered primary care patients in the clinic.
Our Behavioral Health program serves all ages – children, adolescents, and adults who have acute behavioral health challenges, and/or have experienced significant impairment in one or more areas of life functioning due to a chronic mental health condition. We provide treatment for mood symptoms, anxiety/nervousness, attention and cognitive processing impairments, thought disorders, substance use or addiction disorders, and other behavioral health concerns. We offer psychiatric consultation, assessment and diagnostic evaluation, individual psychotherapy, medication management, and referral and referral assistance in accessing other community supports and services. The Behavioral Health team collaborating with the primary care providers consists of Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners, Behavioral Health Assistants and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Care Managers. The Case Managers help coordinate the treatment program which utilizes Suboxone or buprenorphine for treatment of Opiate Use Disorder.
We recognize that factors such as the opioid epidemic, COVID-19 isolation, trauma, loneliness, financial hardships, and changes in physical health conditions can cause stress and depression not previously experienced. It may be tough to take that first step, but you are not alone. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than 50% of the U.S. population will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their life. Siskiyou Community Health Center has been offering behavioral health services for more than 15 years, closely coordinated with primary care provider services, and know it is an important piece of the overall care and wellbeing emphasizing the mind (mental), body (physical), and spiritual needs of human beings.
Dan McDonnel, PMHNP
Dan offers psychiatry and prescriber services in addition to neurofeedback.
Neurofeedback uses advanced technology and neuroscience to record brainwaves and electrical activity, which is used to gain the knowledge to balance the work of the central nervous system and optimize brain function and performance. This safe, effective, non-invasive neurofeedback training can improve the symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, depression, poor concentration, irritability, and other mental health issues. Neurofeedback is an innovative approach to improve the brain’s ability to self-regulate.
