Special Mental Health Programs
Other than providing specialized assessments, diagnosis and treatment for patients, Dean's Mental Health Specialists also work closely with other medical specialists and community support networks to provide the following services:
- Primary Care Consultation — Dean's Mental Health clinicians work closely with primary care providers within family medicine, pediatrics and internal medicine, to assess patients at their physician's request. Consultation can help clarify a diagnostic question, brainstorm ideas for treatment planning, and assess whether or not a patient would best be served by being referred to a Mental Health specialist.
- Behavioral Medicine Service — Behavioral Medicine Service is comprised of a team of doctoral level psychologists who specialize in working with medical patients and their families to assist in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions. They also work with patients experiencing lifestyle or stress-related disorders to prevent further illness and improve health outcomes. The Behavioral Medicine Team collaborates with healthcare providers to promote comprehensive treatment of patients and their health.
- School Consultation Team — This service is available at the Sun Prairie Clinic location only. Therapists obtain permission from parents to collaborate with school staff on intervention plans for individual children and teens. The School Consultation Team meets with Sun Prairie Area School District staff on a monthly basis to monitor the patient's progress with school behavior, attendance, and academic performance, and to update recommendations for the school setting. Individual consultation regarding school-based interventions is available on a case-by-case basis at all other Dean Psychiatry departments.
