About Our Behavioral Health Services
The Behavioral Health Program at Lilac City Pediatrics is integrated with our primary care department. This means that your primary care provider works closely with your behavioral health provider to offer coordinated care of mind and body.
Mental health is an important part of overall health. Just as you monitor your child's, weight, blood sugar, and developmental milestones, regular mental health check-ups are also important. We know that medical and mental health conditions often go hand in hand, and each can affect the other. We believe that having both primary care and behavioral health providers working together under one roof helps patients achieve mental/physical health and wellness goals.
