    Behavioral Health


    Behavioral health refers to the connection between your behaviors and the health of your body and mind. Behavioral health can include treatment and prevention of disorders like depression, anxiety and substance use disorder.

    Mental Health


    Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It may affect how you handle stress or relate to others. Genetics, brain chemistry, trauma or abuse, and family history all contribute to your mental health.
