The majority of patients cared for at the Good Shepherd Community Clinic, Inc. (GSCC) are struggling with behavioral health problems and social determinates that have a severe impact on their overall health, leaving them at risk for chronic diseases. Integrating behavioral health with the healthcare team will allow the GSCC to treat and improve health outcomes of patients served. Addressing behavioral health through trauma-informed care is important because these problems, left untreated, can have lifelong effects that harm not only patients, but also their families, schools, workplaces, and communities.
