Coordinating Mental Health Care

Coordinating mental health care can be challenging and complicated, so let’s dive into this topic further. If you have questions at any point, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Avalon Malibu team and we’ll be happy to provide you with some more information.

Coordinating Mental Health Care

If you’ve recently received a mental health diagnosis or you’ve had a diagnosis for years, you probably understand how difficult it can be to coordinate care. Having multiple doctors can make things very challenging and it can get even more complicated if they’re not communicating with one another. If you’re interested in some tips and tricks you can use for coordinating care, keep reading.

Make a New Email

At Avalon Malibu, one of our favorite tips to recommend is making a new email for all of your mental health correspondence. This email can be helpful when keeping track of appointments, but it can also make sure that you don’t miss anything when you’re communicating with multiple different providers.

If your providers use their own app or software for communication, there may be a way that you can set it to send emails to your new email address.

Set Clear Expectations

One of the most important things to consider when it comes to coordinating mental health care is that it’s essential to set clear expectations. If you know that you want one of your providers to be communicating with another one of your providers, it’s important that you reach out to them and let them know that.

Some providers are more open to collaboration than others. If you realize that your current provider is not open to speaking with your other providers, then it may be time for you to either have an open and honest conversation with them or move your care elsewhere.

Don’t be afraid to advocate for yourself and get the care you need!
