With this approach, communication between the therapist and PCP is often minimized. Thus, the therapist approach also minimizes opportunities to effect any change in the PC system, even if the therapist is a part of the PC system. Relatedly, the care context in a consultant approach is team-based, whereas in a therapist approach, it is more autonomous. In most specialty MH clinics, a therapist can easily go an entire day without interacting substantively with coworkers. In fact, many therapists operate private practices where coworkers do not even exist!

Takeaway: Integration must subtract from, not add to, the workload of PCPs. In addition to a lack of time, PCPs also report feeling underprepared for managing many behaviorally influenced problems. In a typical 3-year family medicine residency, the “psychiatry” rotation lasts just 1 month (and it is during this month that, as Strosahl (2013) likes to joke, most residents take a vacation). Indeed, many residents assume they will rarely need to manage complex behavioral issues and that they will be able to reliably refer to psychiatrists and psychologists, only to learn after residency that much of what they must help patients with involves behavior.

As antidepressant use has climbed, so has the use of antipsychotics (Olfson & Marcus, 2009). When a patient doesn’t improve on an antidepressant, an antipsychotic is often added. A reasonable alternative to all of these medications would be a strong dose of behavioral interventions, but that rarely happens (Robinson, Geske, Prest & Barnacle, 2005). As noted earlier, most PCPs have neither the time nor the training to provide detailed behavioral guidance, and specialty MH providers are hard to come by.
