CCPEC Behavioral Health

Behavioral Health

As the regional partner of Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC), we practice whole-person care, embracing the philosophy that the compartmentalized “silo” approach to care is inadequate. At Community Care Plan of Eastern Carolina (CCPEC), we believe a patient’s behavioral health and primary-care services must be integrated to be effective, because true health improvement addresses the complex interactions between mind and body.

Our Behavioral Health Integration Projects

Depression Toolkits for Primary Care

These downloadable toolkits, one for adolescents and the other for adults, address methods of treating Major Depressive Disorder in a primary-care setting. Assembled by the CCNC behavioral health team, the two toolkits are adapted from innovative work originally done by fellow CCNC network Community Care of Western North Carolina.

Motivational Interviewing

A communication strategy for helping our patients become their own biggest advocates of, and agents for, their personal health improvement.

Primary Care Integration

Supporting the medical home model of care, with behavioral health needs being met in a primary-care setting.


Or Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral, and Treatment. This comprehensive public-health approach works to identify, treat, and refer individuals at risk for tobacco, alcohol, or other substance-use problems.

Our Behavioral Health Staff

Our skilled people-centric team includes our Behavioral Health Coordinator, plus several Social Work Care Managers and a Behavioral Health Clinical Pharmacist. Meet them here.

Local Mental Health Resources

Medicaid-covered behavioral health services in our 27-county service area are coordinated by three different MCOs, or managed-care organizations: Trillium Health Resources, Eastpointe, and Cardinal Innovations Healthcare. These MCOs do not provide direct care to Medicaid patients, but rather help establish relationships with providers for mental health, substance-abuse, and intellectual/developmental disability services.

Consult the Regional Behavioral Health Map to see which MCO covers your own county.
