Behavioral Health in Primary Care Case Presentation Template

The overarching goal of the Behavioral Health in Primary Care ECHO is to enhance the skills of primary care providers in assessing the behavioral health needs of patients. We do this by improving their skills in non-pharmacologic primary care interventions and assisting in the creation of a local or regional referral network. In this clinic, you will have access to a psychiatrist, a psychologist, and an internist.

The Behavioral Health in Primary Care ECHO is led by David L. Carlson, MD, M.Div., FAPA, ABPN. In 2014 Dr. Carlson joined the School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Science as Professor and Director of the Psychiatry Residency Program. Dr. Carlson has worked in academic medicine since 1995 serving as Psychiatry Clerkship Director, and Director of Undergraduate Medical Education in the Neurosciences and Residency Program Director in North Dakota. Dr. Carlson has also served as Chief of Service for Mental Health and Chief of Psychiatry for the VA System in North Dakota and Northern Minnesota and has been Chief Medical Officer and CEO for Prairie Psychiatric Center in Fargo, ND.

Dr. Darryll Patterson, Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, completed Emory's Internal Medicine residency program and was a faculty member at Michigan State University's Medical School for more than a decade. He has been highly involved in medical student education, serving as the course director for the MSU Biostatistics and Epidemiology Course (2005-2011), the Genitourinary Systems Course Director (2006-2013), and as the Director of Medical Education for McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital (2010-2014).

Dr. Steve Graybar, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist who divides his time between his private practice and his work with the School of Medicine. In his practice, he works with individuals, couples, and families in psychotherapy and consults with institutions, organizations, and businesses. At the School of Medicine and in the Department of Psychiatry he coordinates psychotherapy training for psychiatry residents through seminars and individual and group supervision. He also works with the Office of Statewide Initiatives and Project ECHO providing clinical consultations and professional development to both senior and early career clinicians throughout the state via weekly teleconferences.
