What is Behavioral Health?
Behavioral Health is mental health. Like Physical health issues such as diabetes or asthma, mental health conditions and substance use disorders are related to biological factors, childhood experiences and environmental exposures.

SBNC’s behavioral health practitioners take all these factors into account as we work together with you to get to the root of your problems. Behavioral health treatment can include behavioral health therapy sessions, integration with primary care, substance use disorders treatment, and medication.
