Abstract

The Mental Health Consultation Team (MHCT) at the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center nursing home is an interdisciplinary group of mental health professionals and primary care providers established to triage mental health consultations, improve communication between consultants and primary care providers, help staff translate consultants' recommendations into patient care, and furnish education in the management of mental health problems. The MHCT has decreased the demands for formal psychiatry and psychology consultations while increasing mental health services through innovative use of existing staff.
