Behavioral health problems are medical problems, no different from infections, high blood pressure, diabetes or asthma. The difference is that behavioral illnesses are disorders of the brain and nervous system that affect mood, thought, behavior and relationships.
About 20 percent of the U.S. population are affected by behavioral disorders during a given year - more people than all cancers or respiratory conditions. Only cardiovascular diseases has a slightly greater prevalence.
