Who can participate?

Prescribing health care providers who treat behavioral/mental health in youth and perinatal people in Michigan are eligible for
MC3 consultations. This includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nurse midwives practicing in family
medicine, general medicine, pediatrics, OB/Gyn/perinatal, pediatric subspecialties, and psychiatry practices. As part of their participation, they will be asked to sign a Provider Agreement (online form available) that outlines program services and respective responsibilities.

What is not included?

MC3 is not an emergency service. Emergency consultations over the phone or in person are not provided. If a provider calls about a patient requiring an urgent intervention, the Behavioral Health Consultant can offer appropriate crisis resource recommendations.

Consulting psychiatrists do not prescribe medication or provide ongoing treatment but rather support providers as they provide care. For those cases beyond the scope of the provider, the BHC and psychiatrist will offer referrals to local or regional resources
