Behavioural health describes the connection between behaviours and the health and well-being of the body, mind and spirit. This would include how behaviours like eating habits, drinking or exercising impact physical or mental health.
As a discipline, behavioural health includes Mental Health. In fact, it refers to mental health, psychiatric, marriage and family counseling and addictions treatment, and it includes services provided by social workers, counselors, psychiatrists, neurologists and physicians.
If you feel as though you have an issue that involves anything other than your physical health, please reach out to a professional. That said, some physical health issues are in fact as a result of behavioural concerns.
If you feel like you just need to talk to someone, feel free to reach out to one of the Peer Team Members. Otherwise, starting with your Primary Healthcare Provider is the best option. Our EFAP Benefits Provider at www.workhealthlife.com is another place to start.
