WHAT ARE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH ISSUES?
Behavioral Health is the study of the interaction between psychology and biology, and how both affect your health. This includes how your mind and body work together to create a state of well-being. At Esse Health, we understand the impact a person's thoughts and feelings can have on their health. Trauma, death, loss of a job, chronic health conditions and social isolation can all lead to behavioral health issues such as depression and chronic stress, which can have a tremendous impact on your overall health.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, weight gain or loss, an inability to concentrate, stomach problems, severe headaches, sleeping problems and general muscle pain, you may be experiencing chronic stress or other Behavioral Health Issues.
HOW ARE THEY DIAGNOSED?
Your Esse Health team will ask you about your mental health. Use this opportunity to discuss with your healthcare provider feelings or thoughts that you think might be affecting your overall health.
WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT OPTIONS?
