Coordinating care between your counselor and primary care physician (PCP) is important. Here are 4 reasons why you may want to coordinate care between your counselor and PCP.
- Working together means better odds with success!
- Your counselor will meet with you more frequently than your PCP.
- PCP can prescribe medication for your mental health condition and your counselor can’t.
- If something significant changes, your counselor can let your PCP know.
