Behavioral health care is occasionally referred to as mental health care; however, the term behavioral health is more common now because it includes your behaviors and habits, as well as your mental and emotional wellness.1
Conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic disorders, stress management, addictions, eating disorders, relationship issues and others can affect how you think, feel and act. Your behavioral health determines how you handle stress, relate to others and make healthy choices. If you have a behavioral health need, you are not alone.
