The Integrated Care service category involves providing same-day consultation and crisis intervention for patients in their medical or dental appointments. You can request an IBH consultation while you are here at SNAHC for your medical or dental appointment. Consultations are confidential and last from 5-20 minutes. Our Integrated Behavioral Health Provider specializes in:
- Working with patients and providers to determine behavioral health and social needs
- Educating patients about behavioral health (mental health, therapy, drug and alcohol treatment, etc),
- Ensuring that the patient leaves with a greater understanding of how SNAHC can assist in their healing and recovery.
- Making targeted referrals to specific providers to match patient needs with provider specialties
Prevention & Early Intervention- Youth Initiatives
The BHIS’s Youth Initiatives Team is committed to supporting Native American youth and families with quality services and advocacy through cultural values. Using community-based and youth-driven approaches, we are developing a system of care for Native American children with mental health challenges and their families. The Youth Initiatives program applies principles of a family-driven approach, meaning, families have a primary decision making role in the care of their own children as well as the policies and procedures governing care for all children in their community. The Youth Initiatives Team also does work around suicide and substance abuse prevention within Sacramento Native American communities.
SNAHC’s Youth Initiatives program focuses on providing programs or advocacy focused in the four areas
- Red Vision II– Provides resources to fund youth substance abuse prevention activities with goals of decreasing underage drinking and substance abuse for American Indian Youth
- Native Wellness Youth Initiatives (NYWI)– Provides resources to fund the Gathering of Native Americans (GONA) which increases protective factors and utilizes trauma informed approaches to reduce suicide, suicidal ideation, and attempts among urban American Indian/ Alaska Native youth
- Circles of Care (COC) – Brings the Sacramento urban American Indian community together to plan and perform an in-depth gap analysis of the systems of care impacting the mental health and wellness of American Indian children and their families.
- Native Connections– Develop a culturally responsive model for youth programming focused on mental health promotion, suicide prevention, and substance use prevention activities.

Counseling & Treatment
The Counseling & Treatment service category include two types of one-on-one counseling, mental health counseling (often called therapy or psychotherapy) provided by Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs), and Substance Abuse Counseling provided by Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors (CADCs). While the purpose and specific approaches may vary, the overall goal is the same: to support you in your ability to manage stress and to build and maintain health coping skills.
