Behavioral Health

Behavioral health is about how our emotions, mental health, and behaviors affect your overall health and wellness. Our mind and body are one. This means that stress, anxiety, and a range of mental health conditions can have a negative impact on our physical health. The opposite is also true—physical injury, disease, and the effects of aging can harm your behavioral well-being. Behavioral health issues affect tens of millions of Americans, but these issues often come with harmful stigmas that can cause shame, making it difficult for people to seek help. Thankfully, the Monadnock Assembly on Trauma and Transformation is working to change that.
