This practicum report describes my experience of working with adults who presented with mental health concerns at the Primary Care Interprofessional Team (PCIPT) at Northern Interior Health Unit, Prince George. Primary care is a relatively new model in health care that seeks to move away from the old practice where treatment of mental illness was mostly provided by the general practitioners. Primary health care relies on the contributions of team members to work collaboratively to address the different needs of the clients. The purpose of my practicum was to find out how clients benefit when different disciplines work together to improve their health outcome. This report described my learning goals and objectives and how they were met through observation, reflection, and practice. The practicum experience also enabled me to further develop my social work skills and have an understanding of how mental health problems affect individual wellbeing.
