Evara Health’s Behavioral Health Care is accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Evara Health is Certified by AAAHC as a Patient-Centered Medical Home: the model is best described as a philosophy of medical care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team based, coordinated, and focused on quality and safety.
Integrated into your Medical and Dental Home, Evara Health’s Behavioral Health therapy is available to all existing medical and dental patients, serving families and individuals of all ages. Licensed mental health counselors and licensed clinical social workers provide brief interventions and solution focused sessions to patients who need it – when they need it.
Behavioral health impacts everyone – and just like your medical health, whether you need care depends on what’s going on in your life. Therapists can help with managing stress, family and life changes, depression, disordered eating, chronic diseases, anxiety, trauma, and many other challenges that come from just living your life. The therapists work collaboratively with you and your primary care provider to support you in your behavioral health needs and with a multi-disciplinary team of professional, paraprofessionals and lay workers, including RN’s, LPN’s, care coordinators, pharmacists, and wellness coaches.
Our therapists jump-start the road to recovery by providing the tools and appropriate level of care needed to make tomorrow better than today.
Children’s Mental Health Initiative
The Children’s Mental Health Initiative (CMHI), a Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County funded initiative, is a community-wide effort involving multiple organizations and teams working toward achieving the collective vision of enhancing care coordination for children and their families in Pinellas County.
Areas of focus of CMHI include integration of behavioral health services into pediatric practices for increased access; universal screenings for early detection, intervention, and treatment; ongoing education to raise awareness about adverse childhood experiences and how it impacts a child’s health and well-being now and later in life. Evara Health therapists work collaboratively with a child, their family and the pediatric provider addressing behavior issues in and out of school, newly diagnosed ADHD and other behavioral health diagnosis, and providing further assessment and evaluation. There is a team of patient care coordinators, wellness coaches and nurses to further support the child and family by providing education, support, and care coordination.
