Welcome to our Behavioral Health page
Behavioral health generally refers to mental health and substance use disorders, life stressors and crises, and stress-related physical symptoms. Behavioral health care refers to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of those conditions.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) one in five adults (PDF) in the U.S. have a clinically significant mental health or substance use disorder. Furthermore, the prevalence and severity of mental health conditions among children and teens has increased sharply. Yet, many people fail to receive treatment due in part to the long-standing shortage of behavioral health providers.
How can IPHCA help?
Our specialised team is dedicating to helping our membership and the wider community create appropriate and effective care strategies to alleviate some of the behavioral health problems facing many people in our communities - problems that disproportionately affect the under-insured and disadvantaged.
Our team is led by Lyndsey White, LCSW.
Lyndsey holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Kent State University, and a master’s degree in social work with Cum Laude honors from Youngstown State University.
Before she joined IPHCA, Lyndsey worked with the Indiana Department of Child Services, Wabash family drug treatment court, Partnership for a Drug-Free Johnson County, and the Addictions Committee of the Indiana Council of Community Mental Health Centers.
