Refer patients to MiResource for mental health needs
MiResource is a unique, online mental health provider referral service that allows users to filter by specific patient needs. BCBSKS is piloting this product with mental health providers across the state to help Kansans easily find mental health care that best fits their needs.
MiResource’s foundation comes from the heart, and its mission aligns with the commitments of its co-founders, Mackenzie Drazan and Gabriela Asturias. Mackenzie experienced the death of her sister by suicide and Gabriela experienced her own overwhelming anxiety during college. Each made commitments to dedicate their lives to helping people connect to the right mental health care, at the right time in the right way. BCBSKS is thrilled to be able to offer this free resource to all Kansans.
MiResource guides users to answer specific questions to be matched with the right mental health resource. The questions help the tool filter the user’s needs with some of the following:
- Type of care, such as: talk therapy and medication management
- Areas of focus, such as: grief or loss, trauma, sexual or gender identity, and sleep concerns
- Preferred method of payment
- In-person or telehealth
- Provider identity, such as: race/ethnicity and languages spoken
- Accessibility, such as: step-free entry and elevators
