What is Behavioral Health?
Behavioral health is also commonly referred to as mental health or emotional health. These terms generally refer to our thoughts, feelings and actions, particularly when faced with life's challenges and stressors. Throughout our lives, mental health is the foundation of our thinking and communication skills, learning, emotional growth, resilience and self-esteem.
Depending on the circumstances in your life at any given time, your state of mental health may be located at any point along the continuum below. On the continuum, states of mental health are differentiated by the amount of stress/distress and impairment involved. The lines differentiating states of mental health are not precise because it is not clear at which exact point a concern becomes a problem, or a problem becomes an illness.
We will work with you and your loved ones to evaluate what services will best meet your needs and help achieve your goals.
