The Behavioral Health Interdisciplinary Program (BHIP) consists of several multi-disciplinary teams of mental health providers who work together to ensure Veteran's mental health and related needs are met. Each BHIP team structure consists of up to four team-lets, with up to four psychiatric providers on each team. As an administrative supervisor for one BHIP team you will oversee day-to-day operations of one BHIP team and ensure coordination of all mental health and related services. The BHIP team manages, coordinates, and provides Veteran-centered, recovery-oriented, and evidence-based care that is consistent with the Veteran's identified treatment goals. This team approach allows for close collaboration and assistance both with clinical and administrative needs and coverage. Medical Support Assistants provide scheduling and other administrative support as needed for the BHIP Teams. This mature clinic allows clinical staff to receive mentoring from seasoned staff and obtain training for professional growth and licensure on a regular basis. The program also allows for teaching of social work interns, non-independently licensed social workers, and other staff throughout the Mental Health Service, as well as self-initiated program improvement projects. BHIP at the SAVAHCS is on the cutting edge of innovation and transformation to improve team collaboration and empower Veterans to work toward recovery. Clinicians who work at the SAVAHCS need not worry about insurance companies, and they find the fully integrated medical record ideal for close collaboration of care.
