For Current WakeMed Primary Care Patients

WakeMed Primary Care Referrals for Behavioral Health

WakeMed offers psychological services to adult and pediatric patients referred by our designated Primary Care providers. Patients are identified based on our Whole Health assessment, which takes place at the start of each patient visit. These patients may be eligible for Outpatient Behavioral Health services which include Adult and Pediatric Behavioral Health as well as Virtual Behavioral Health services.

Patients typically transition to another provider within the Behavioral Health Network as time progresses and the patient is stabilized.
