What is the difference between behavioral health and mental health?

Many times, the terms “mental health” and “behavioral health” are used interchangeably. However, there are some differences between these two terms. Here’s how we define them:

Behavioral Health

Behavioral Health

Behavioral health refers to the connection between your behaviors and the health of your body and mind. Often, behavioral health includes the treatment and prevention of behavioral health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and substance use disorder.

Mental Health

Mental Health

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social health. The state of your mental health may affect the way you handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Many factors contribute to your mental health, including genetics, brain chemistry, trauma, or abuse, and family history.
