What is behavioral health?

Behavioral health is a wide-ranging term that refers to the link between your behaviors, like your eating, drinking, and exercise habits, and your mental and physical health. Behavioral health care encompasses issues related to mental health disorders, addiction, and life stress-related symptoms. 


Behavioral health care focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating symptoms that arise from behavioral health-related problems.

  • Substance misuse
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Self-harm
  • Binge eating


Behavioral health services empower patients by helping them understand why they do and feel certain things and giving them tools to improve their symptoms.

How does behavioral health relate to physical health?

Your mental health and circumstances, like stressors, inform your behavior, and your behavior informs your physical health.

For example, if you are suffering from depression, you may be struggling with binge eating and weight gain as a result. Likewise, if you’re struggling with binge eating and weight gain, you may be struggling with depression as a result. Or, together, the two symptoms may relate to another issue.

Regardless, how you behave and how you feel physically and mentally are linked, and to be as happy and healthy as possible, it’s important to address your health holistically.
