Behavioral Health Topics

What is behavioral health?

If you feel like life's suddenly shattered to pieces...

“Behavioral health” often is used to describe the connection between our behaviors and the health and well-being of the body, mind, and spirit. This includes behaviors such as eating habits, drinking, or exercising that either immediately or over time impact physical or mental health.

The goals of behavioral health interventions are similar to those of other primary care treatment: helping people function so they can lead healthier, fuller lives. – Maine Health Access Foundation
