Millions of people in the U.S. are affected by behavioral health issues each year. Behavioral health essentially refers to the health and well-being of both the body and the mind. This includes mental health and substance use challenges, which can take many forms like depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, eating disorders, and so on.
Baptist Health is here to provide behavioral health support based on a holistic approach to get you or your loved one the support necessary to begin recovery.
“Burnout is not just being tired. There are real physical manifestations, including irritability, unintentional weight loss or gain, sleep disturbances, increase in use of tobacco or alcohol, memory issues, difficulty concentrating and the list goes on."
“Talking to your kids early on is going to lay the groundwork for them feeling comfortable talking about their feelings and emotions. Build the rapport with them from the start."
“Experiencing anxiety and worry when we go into new situations or changing situations is common. We want to be mindful of taking care of ourselves, addressing change and knowing we are probably much stronger and much more resilient than we think we are. ”

While this would not be a clinical diagnosis, it could be used as a helpful tool for starting a conversation about your mental health and beginning your road to recovery.
