What is Behavioral Health?
Some people use the terms behavioral and mental health interchangeably. However, there are a few crucial differences. When distinguishing the two, behavioral health refers to how your behaviors impact your health. This often includes looking at a person’s mental health. Sometimes, a change in behavior patterns can help a patient better cope with their mental health conditions.
Many times, someone can be physically okay, but their mental health is suffering. Conditions such as anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and others can be detrimental to a person’s overall wellbeing. Resolving mental and emotional disorders requires expertise, compassion, and specialized care. From depression and severe mood swings to schizophrenia and brain disorders, our team will work with you and your primary care provider to develop a program that works for your needs.
