Behavioral Health Services

What Are Behavioral Health Services?

First things first: What is behavioral health? Is it the same as mental health?

Behavioral health refers to a person’s “state of being and how their behaviors and choices affect their overall health and wellness.” It is about your overall wellbeing, and how it can be affected by certain behaviors.

Behavioral health issues are those that are propagated by conscious decisions. This could refer to actions or habits that are hard to resist, even if they have negative consequences. Some examples of these issues are substance abuse disorders, eating disorders, and behavioral addictions (e.g., gaming, gambling, shopping, pornography).

Behavioral health is often interchangeably used with mental health, and it is easy to understand why. Some mental health issues are rooted in or are affected by behavior. However, mental health disorders often have neurological or biological causes. This means that simply changing a person’s (or those around them) behavior will not address the issue.

Examples of mental health disorders can include depression, schizophrenia, attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or bipolar disorder.

Integrated behavioral health services refer to collaboration among medical and behavioral health clinicians to address conditions and related factors that affect health and well-being.

Importance Of Community Behavioral Health Services

Pain and trauma are inevitable parts of life but it does not mean we have to live with the long-term, and sometimes destructive, effects of living through negative experiences.

Community health and behavioral services support vulnerable individuals or groups who may otherwise not have access to professional help.

It gives everyone a chance to lead happier and healthier lives, which in effect allows people to become productive members of society.

Positive behavioral health is key to overall wellness. When a person has control over their behavior and is cognizant of how it affects their lives, they sleep and eat better. They have healthy relationships and are stimulated physically and mentally. They are also more productive, more resilient to stress, and tend to have a more positive outlook on life.
