15 Minute Consult
When visiting your physician at a location where PCPA is present, and tell them about psychological, social or behavioral concerns you are having currently, your physician may request that you meet with a PCPA therapist for a 15 minute same-day, on-site consult or a "warm hand-off". During that consult, the therapist conducts an abbreviated assessment of your concerns, offers a practical intervention, and determines whether there is a need for psychological treatment. Based on that recommendation, you may decide to schedule a follow up with that therapist or another PCPA provider based on your availability and goodness of fit. You may also be offered referrals to self-help resources, medical or mental health providers, or other specialized care.
