What is Behavioral Health? A Look at Our Behavioral Health Services
Behavioral health is an overall term that includes mental health and how mental health can directly affect your overall physical and mental well-being. It covers the connections between the overall well-being and health of the mind, body, and spirit. From daily habits like eating and drinking to physical and mental health. At one point, during the 1970s and 1980s, behavioral health focused on behaviors that would prevent illness or promote good health. This recently changed to incorporate mental health, as well.
Although mental health covers many of the same aspects and issues as behavioral health, we use the latter term to differentiate from mental health. Mental only addresses the biological aspects of wellness, whereas behavioral covers all contributions to mental wellness including abuse, substance, habits, and other outside factors.
