You Are Not Alone... In fact, one out of every four people experience a behavioral health problem every year. The most common behavioral health problems are depression, substance abuse, and social anxiety. Common causes of behavioral health problems include major changes or events in one's life, neorological conditions, changes in health status, social pressures, environmental stress, and heredity.

It Is Not Your Fault... Are you or is someone you care for experiencing emotional difficulties?  People who experience a behavioral health problem might think there is something wrong with them, they may feel unusually stressed, they might think they did something they were not supposed to, or that people will judge them. In fact, people do feel better when they talk about a problem with someone who can help them.

The Goal is Wellness... Wellness is the experience of health, peace and satisfaction we have when the physical, spiritual, and mental parts of ourselves are balanced and work in harmony.
