One Body, One Mind
Cooley Dickinson Health Care is happy to be able offer an Integrated Behavioral Health option that makes behavioral health resources easier to access, through your primary care provider. The program is staffed by Psychiatrist Peter J. Halperin, MD and Marlene Meinelt, LICSW, and is open to anyone whose primary care provider is a member of the Cooley Dickinson Medical Group (CDMG).
Dr. Halperin is the developer and medical director of the Integrated Behavioral Health program, which introduced a new model for accepting referrals from Cooley Dickinson Medical Group (CDMG) providers. Referred patients can get appointments faster, and referring providers receive timely follow-up communications about each patient. To receive care, each patient must have a referral from their primary care provider.

- Appointments with Dr. Halperin or Marlene Meinelt, for two to three months
- Medication consultations
