Managing your Behavioral Health

This should be an image

Behavioral health involves many aspects of our daily lives. At its core, behavioral health represents our mental health, which includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It also represents our struggles with substance use, ranging from excessive caffeine consumption to problems with drugs and alcohol.

However, it is important to recognize that behavioral health also represents our general emotions, thoughts, and actions. Importantly, our level of behavioral health impacts our ability to respond to life stressors and crises. When our behavioral health suffers, we are less likely to effectively cope with events that are happening in the external world around us. In turn, stressful life experiences impact our behavioral health.

Developed by members of our partnership team, these modules are meant to provide members of our community with reliable information, tips, and resources for managing common behavioral health concerns.

Modules describing signs and symptoms of behavioral health conditions are not diagnostic.
