Access to mental health resources both nationally and in Vermont has become a challenge for both primary care clinics and patients to navigate. Attributed to a multitude of factors including cost barriers, limited health professional availability, societal stigma, this is a behavioral health need that requires attention to improve success of patients receiving mental healthcare. This project focuses on addressing one aspect of that need from a clinical level, creating and updating a referral handout for both patient and provider use. The outcome of this project aims to increase the likelihood of successful patient referral to needed mental health resources.
