Patients need holistic and timely care that puts them first. However, knowing where to go and what provider to see can be challenging for patients seeking treatment for specialty mental health needs. Whether it’s a need for holistic care, problems with high turnover rates, or access issues, healthcare organizations face many challenges when it comes to meeting patient needs.
That’s where Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs) or Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs) come in. These providers not only help patients get the best care possible, but they also help healthcare organizations overall by helping improve access to specialty care, create better patient outcomes, and reduce delayed care through teletherapy.
This resource serves as a guide to help you better understand the benefits of teletherapy for your organization and community, how to fit LCSWs into your behavioral health strategy, and how these clinicians can help your organization build an effective integrated care model.

Together, we can help you find the best provider match for your community and effectively meet the needs of your population.
