Why Provide Behavioral Health Services?

Lāna‘i Community Health Center recognizes that good physical health is difficult to maintain if emotional and mental health needs are not addressed. Therefore, behavioral health is made available to patients as a necessary component of comprehensive, quality health care. These services offer assistance when habits, behaviors, stress, worry, or emotional concerns about physical or other life problems interfere with someone’s daily life and quality of living.

What Kind of Providers Will I Be Seeing?

Behavioral health providers are clinical psychologists with specialty training in primary care and health psychology. Our psychologists include those with Native Hawaiian background, and a strong commitment to working in rural areas.

What Kind of Problems Can Behavioral Health Help With?

Our behavioral health providers work with you to reduce your symptoms associated with various chronic medical conditions, such as migraine and tension headaches, fibromyalgia, diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, and cardiovascular disease.
Programs for smoking cessation, weight loss, substance abuse, exercise or other lifestyle modifications are also offered either through group or individual sessions. Our providers also address other emotional or behavioral problems such as family or relationship difficulties, excess stress, bereavement, depression, anxiety or anger.

How Do I Make an Appointment?

You can make an appointment for behavioral health services by calling 565-6919, x121. Appointments are typically set within 1-2 weeks, and are offered Monday thru Friday. Our providers are also available 24/7 through the LCHC provider hotline.

What Should I Expect During a Behavioral Health Appointment?

During your first appointment, our behavioral health provider will ask you specific questions about your physical symptoms, medical/psychiatric history, any emotional concerns you are experiencing, your behaviors, and how all of these might be related. Social and cultural factors will also be reviewed. Initial appointments will generally last one hour. Follow-up appointments will be set depending on your identified needs and can range from 30 minutes to one hour in length. Our behavioral health providers work closely with our medical providers, as needed, to develop and implement the best integrated health plan for you.
