The terms mental health and behavioral health are often used interchangeably when classifying some of the common medical disorders and illnesses, such as anxiety and depression. Some medical professionals, patients, and families prefer the term behavioral health in order to avoid the  stigmas associated with the term mental health. 

However, mental health is just like physical health, in the sense that sometimes we have a healthy mindet and sometimes we don’t. Generally speaking, mental health describes a person’s mental state – how they think and feel about themselves and the world. Behavioral health describes a person’s behaviors – how they act and react in ways support or undermine their overall health. In reality, our thoughts influence our behavior, and both are related to our physical health as well.

The important focus, then, is on a person’s overall health: how might their mindset, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors make their life more difficult, and how can treatment alleviate their suffering and help them thrive?

At Peak Behavioral Health, our primary concern is not to argue terminology but to care for our patients and provide the resources and tools they need to get better.
