Mental Health Awareness


Behavioral Health is a broad term that refers to how a person’s actions affect their overall health. This covers mental health and substance misuse concerns, stress-related physical symptoms, and health-related behaviors. Our emotional, psychological, and social well-being are all addressed by mental health.
Our Behavioral Health Design Specialists are proud to support organizations who are helping those affected by behavioral health conditions so they may receive the support, dignity, and appropriate continuum of care that will ensure they lead healthy and fulfilling lives. As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, we’d like to take this time to recognize our clients and the steps they are taking to make a difference!
