PROFESSIONAL REFERRALS Mind Body Health & Fitness welcomes referrals from community-based allied health partners!
WHAT TYPES OF CLIENTS MIGHT BENEFIT? A multitude of research indicates the importance of client capacity-building and integrated service coordination in enhancing early intervention and prevention strategies in community healthcare. MBHF services will be of particular benefit to clients who have been diagnosed by their health providers with a variety of early onset issues, particularly obesity-related symptoms or mental health issues that are responsive to lifestyle change as an early intervention strategy. Outcomes will be enhanced for these clients when MBHF has the opportunity to provide skilled case coordination and management, making the client an integral part of the team approach to managing his or her health and lifestyle needs.
WHAT WILL SERVICES INVOLVE? The client will be free to choose any combination of services or service packages, as they wish. Should the client select to utilize case management services, the referral source and MBHF will have the opportunity to establish ongoing communication to share updates, challenges, and successes with the client's progress in various domains. Should the client select coaching services only, Marianna will provide such, with a strengths and evidence-based approach that accounts for the client's unique presenting issues, be they medical, mental health related, or others.
If the client elects to utilize case management services, with his or her ongoing consent, Marianna will also make contact with other allied health professionals involved in the client's care, to include physicians, registered dietitians, physical or occupational therapists, mental health providers, and others, to establish a regular, ongoing system of communication and service coordination. Marianna will work closely with the client and his or her team members to ensure that all involved professionals are provided with regular opportunities to work together to most effectively support the client's progress toward his or her healthy living goals. This could involve any combination of regular phone calls, email groups, in-person team meetings, or written communication, as needed. Marianna will work within a framework that is most convenient to the client and involved providers, and is responsive to the client's needs.
