Behavioral Health

Behavioral health includes both mental health and substance abuse issues.

Behavioral healthcare can involve the care and treatment of emotional problems for adults, children and families. It also can involve care and treatment for addictions of any kind such as alcohol, drugs and gambling. Behavioral health issues can affect anyone.

What can cause behavioral health issues?

There are many causes of behavioral health issues. For example, any type of stress or crisis at home, work or in the community can cause behavioral health issues. Loss of a loved one, loss of work or loss of any kind can cause behavioral health issues. Abuse of alcohol or drugs can make issues worse.

Why get help?

If you are concerned about your well-being or that of someone close to you, take time to get help. When your normal coping skills aren’t working to help you deal with the stress of life or a crisis, it may be time to get help.

Behavioral health services can help people who are dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues. People who work in the behavioral health field can help you by trying to understand your needs and setting up the right treatment to meet your needs. Getting treatment can help you change your thoughts, feelings and actions. It can help you stop your addiction to alcohol, drugs or gambling. It can help you make your life better through support and counseling.
