Bill J. McFeature, PhD
Behavioral Health and Primary Care Integration is here to stay. The Institute of Medicine concluded nearly 20 years ago that behavioral health care when separated from the primary care system leads to inferior care. In the intervening years, evidence has continued to mount that having two, mostly independent systems of care leads to worse health outcomes and higher total spending, particularly for patients with comorbid physical and behavioral conditions ranging from depression and anxiety, which often accompany physical health conditions, to substance abuse and more serious and persistent mental illnesses.
Dr. Bill McFeature has fifteen years experience working in medical clinic as a Behavioral Health Consultant and Director and has helped develop four Nationally acknowledged Federally Qualified Primary Care Health Centers and offers organizational development and behavioral health consultation. Dr. McFeature now resides in St. George, Utah
