Behavioral health is very often defined as “the health of the mind.” Our actions impact the quality of our mental health by affecting our mood, appetite, and physical and emotional well-being.
For consumers seeking evidence-based treatments, there’s a lot of confusion about what “behavioral health” actually is. It’s often described as the “health of the mind”. But even the most casual of shoppers have a hard time distinguishing between the two. “Well, that’s what I wanted but I didn’t think it was important.
Like its the health of the mind, it seems that the most important part of the health of a person is the quality of their mental health. There are many factors that affect this, such as a person’s general physical health. For example, a person’s mental health can be affected by their eating habits. A person who is depressed or suffering from a psychotic episode might be more prone to overeat. But this isn’t the only one.
This could be especially true in the case of mentally ill persons. If they overeat, this can lead to weight gain. If they have a mental illness, this can lead to more of a mental illness.
The problem here is that every single one of these behavioral health issues is related to mental illness, and every single one of these behavioral health issues could be attributed to mental illness. So a mental illness can cause someone to overeat. But they might also overeat because they have a mental illness. Or they might overeat because of their mental illness. This is one of those cases where the causal relationship between the behaviors is more complex than most people realize.
Behavioral health issues can be as mild as not eating breakfast. They can be as major as eating too much and getting sick. They can be as minor as not taking your medication. You have to have a certain threshold of mental illness to experience a behavioral health issue. And, of course, you have to have a certain threshold of physical illness to experience an illness.
The problem is that we tend to think of illnesses as “symptoms,” when that’s really a misnomer. It’s more like an “epidemic.” A disease is something that happens to someone. An illness is something that happens to someone that is a symptom of something else.
Behavioural health is a bit of a misnomer as well. While behavioral health is when something happens that makes you feel generally good, in behavioral health you only feel good when you feel good. And that makes sense because you are in the best position to know when something is good or bad. And while you might feel better at a certain point in time, thats not a condition. It’s a feeling.
Well, I did have a bit of a bad day yesterday. I was having a hard time seeing the difference between a “bad day” and a “bad day”. Since I was in the middle of working and feeling a little out of sorts, I let my head rest and went to bed. Not long after I awoke to find myself in the hospital.
I have to say, it is not a pleasant feeling when you find yourself in a hospital. I have seen it happen to my patients countless times, but it is still somewhat unnerving. I had a good night, but then I was still in the hospital for a while because I had no idea what was going on.
