Behavioral & Mental Health Services
It can be difficult to distinguish between behavioral health and mental health services. The key to understanding the two is that behavioral health is an umbrella term that includes mental health. Any mental health services are also considered behavioral health. Any impact on a person, both physical and mental, are a part of their behavioral health.
Mental health is our well-being in relation to behaviors, biology, and environments. Behavioral health is how our well-being, emotions, biology, and behavior are affected by our habits. Behavioral health is concerned with our behaviors impacting our well-being. Mental health is our state of being.
At KCHS we recognize the need for both, behavioral and mental health services. These are services that we need at all ages. Amanda, Suzi, and Ruth serve as our behavioral and mental health team.
