Behavioral Health Q & A

Why is mental health important?

While mental health and physical health have long been treated separately, the links between the two are becoming increasingly clear. Many common mental health disorders, like depression and anxiety, not only impact your mental state — they can also have real, significant physical symptoms. 

Experiencing a behavioral or mental health disorder as an adult isn’t easy, and helping your child navigate behavioral issues can seem even more challenging. Behavioral health issues like depression, anxiety, attention-deficit disorder (ADD), and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can also impact kids, their performance in school, and their quality of life.

When you’re facing behavioral or mental health issues, it impacts every aspect of your life. Behavioral health care seeks to help you achieve the well-being of the mind and soul.

Whether your provider recommends talk therapy, medication, or a combination of treatments, behavioral health care has the power to improve your life.

What should I look for in a behavioral health care provider?
