Behavioral Health is a branch of interdisciplinary health which focuses on a holistic view of human behavior and the well-being of the individual as a whole. When examining behavioral health – the factors of emotional, psychological, and social well-being are considered.
For example, the behavior of giving up smoking can lessen the physical health problems or illnesses associated with cigarettes. Similarly, addiction recovery and continuing sobriety have an immediate positive impact on both physical and mental health.
In 1978, behavioral medicine was introduced as a “interdisciplinary field concerned with the development and integration of behavioral and biomedical science, knowledge and techniques relevant to health and illness and the application of this knowledge and these techniques to prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.”
Behavioral Health is an interdisciplinary science that is sometimes used interchangeable with mental health. However, there is a difference between behavior and mental health.
Behavioral Health involves working with aspects that can be changed by the individual through better habits.
The term “behavioral health” is less stigmatized than “mental health”. A kinder, gentler name opens doors for help and treatment that might otherwise remain closed for some individuals. Behavioral health promotes the well being of individuals by intervening and preventing incidents of mental illness, substance abuse, or other entities in health.
