Coming Soon: Adult Behavioral Health Consult Line
Modeled after VHAN’s Pediatric Behavioral Consult Line, which has fielded more than 2,000 phone calls since launching in 2018, VHAN is launching a similar line later this year to assist clinicians with adults who need behavioral health support.
The new Adult Behavioral Health Consult Line will be managed by Shannon Brown, LCSW, who will be available to assist with patients who are having emotional or behavioral difficulties. Shannon can help develop a behavioral health care plan, assist with level of care determinations, help with safety planning, navigate strategic resources and referrals, conduct direct follow-up and care coordination with families, and more. She can also schedule you with an adult psychiatrist for medication and diagnostic consultation as needed.
The line will be open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. VHAN will conduct a soft launch of the line starting July 1. Any members who are interested in participating can reach out to their network contact for more information.
