A Guide to Using Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Services
Behavioral health includes the emotions and behaviors that affect your overall well-being. Behavioral health is sometimes called mental health and often includes substance use. Just like physical health, behavioral health has trained providers who can help you much like a physical health care provider would.
Everyone has the strength to make important behavioral health changes, but many people are too nervous to talk about it during a health care visit. Asking for support comes with many benefits though. As communities gather around those in need, behavioral health providers are there to support you or your loved one throughout the journey.
