What are Behavioral/Mental Health Services?
Behavioral and mental health services encompass a wide range of care and support aimed at addressing the emotional, psychological, and behavioral well-being of individuals. These services are essential for individuals experiencing conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and other mental health disorders, as well as those facing behavioral challenges due to cognitive decline or dementia.
The goal of behavioral/mental health services is to enhance the overall quality of life and well-being of individuals by:
