The MC3 program provides psychiatry support to primary care providers in Michigan who are managing patients with mild to moderate behavioral health problems. This includes children, adolescents and young adults through age 26, and women who are contemplating pregnancy, pregnant or postpartum with children up to a year. Psychiatrists are available to offer guidance on diagnoses, medications and psychotherapy interventions so that primary care providers can better manage patients in their practices. Support is available through educational phone consultations to referring providers as well as remote psychiatric evaluation to patients and families through video telepsychiatry.
At the current time, the program is limited to primary care providers in designated geographic counties. We hope to continue to expand to other geographic areas in the future.
