Health Care and Plan Benefits

Support your mental health with the right health care.

There are many options to treat and manage your mental health. Know your options and benefits! 

Routine Care

Annual Wellness Visit

One way starts with your Annual Wellness Visit. Your primary care physician may be able to screen, assess and treat your mental health. If they are unable to, they can refer you to a specialist who can. 

Well Child Visit

Just like adults, children need regular checkups too. These are called Well-Child Visits. They help to make sure your child is growing and developing just right. During these visits, their provider will ask about your child's mental health and address any changes or concerns you may have.

Prenatal and Postpartum Care

Caring for your health and well-being is important at every stage in life, especially during pregnancy and after childbirth. This journey brings about significant changes in your life that might be thrilling and exciting, yet can sometimes lead to feelings of distress, anxiety, or sadness.

Prenatal appointments are a great time to learn how to handle the changes happening to your body and the feelings that come with those. 

Postpartum care is the medical attention you receive after giving birth. This is a crucial time as your body is healing and adjusting to no longer being pregnant. After giving birth, some moms may feel more than just 'baby blues'. They might experience postpartum depression, a serious mood disorder. Let your provider know if you are noticing changes to your mental health.

A second route is through an Integrated Care Clinic. This is a place that provides both physical and mental health services. These clinics:

  • Focus on Whole Person care
  • Treat you for both physical health and emotional health needs
  • Allow your providers to talk to one another more easily
  • Provide different health and social services in one place
