Crystal Clifford, BS, C-CHW

My name is Crystal Clifford, and I am the Behavioral Health Program Manager for Valley Family Health Care. Over the last fifteen years, I have worked in developmental health, mental health, behavioral health, and community health. This past year my focus has been the integration of community and behavioral health in the Valley Family physical health care clinics. I believe the best way to ensure we meet our patient’s health goals and needs is through an integrated model that focuses on the whole health of an individual and ensures social determinants of health needs are met.
