Topic: Integrated Physical and Mental Health Care Coming to Santa Barbara

Speaker:  Charles Fenzi, M.D., CEO and Chief Medical Officer, Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics

Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics provide medical care across the South County, serving patients with private insurance, MediCal insurance, and no insurance.  Recently SBNC has begun efforts to expand its services in the area of mental health, using an approach known as “Integrated Care” in which both physical and mental health problems are addressed in the same clinic, often by a single treatment team.  Dr. Fenzi will discuss the current status of integrated care at SBNC as well as future plans. This presentation should be of particular interest to those experiencing difficulty finding providers who accept their insurance or who don’t currently have insurance.   A question and answer session will follow Dr. Fenzi’s talk.
