HealthStar Home Health provides unparalleled public healthcare services through stewardship, honor-driven values, and a genuine desire to serve individuals in our community. We are a culturally sensitive healthcare team that provides services to individuals who are traditionally underserved. In an effort to expand the range of healthcare services offered to our clients, HealthStar Home Health now offers a Behavioral Health Home program.

What is Behavioral Health Home?

BHH (behavioral health home) refers to a model of care focused on integration of primary care, acute, behavioral health and social services and supports for adults with mental health conditions.  Delivered either in the patient’s home or in a group setting, such as an assisted living community, BHH services utilize a multidisciplinary team to provide person-centered services designed to support a person in coordinating care and services while reaching his or her health and wellness goals.

Who is eligible for BHH Care?

BHH is for adults, 18 years and older, who have a qualifying mental health condition and who are enrolled in medical assistance.  Qualifying mental health conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • Generalized Anxiety
  • Major Depression
  • PTSD
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Borderline Personality Disorders
  • Schizophrenia Disorders

Individuals who do not have a formal diagnosis or who are not sure if their mental health condition will qualify them for services are encouraged to call our office at 651-633-7300.  A HealthStar Home Health BHH staff member can provide additional information.
