Behavioral Health Q&A

What is behavioral health?

Behavioral health is similar to mental health, but with more emphasis on your choices due to your thoughts and the ways your thoughts affect you. The Vantage Medical Associates PC team can help you manage both the physical and mental conditions with individualized behavioral health plans.

Changing your habits doesn’t always come easy, but it’s possible after carefully discovering their underlying causes. With professional guidance, you can make significant changes that can transform your mental and physical wellness.

Who can benefit from behavioral health services?

Vantage Medical Associates PC offers behavioral health services to manage the conditions that affect your well-being. Your doctor might suggest taking part in behavioral health care if you experience:


Depression can be a severe mental health disorder. It can affect your mood, drain your energy, and cause you to lose interest in the things that normally give you pleasure. When you’re depressed, changing your behaviors can make a significant difference in how well your treatment works.


Anxiety disorders cause excessive fear or worry that can seem unreasonable to an outsider. Anxiety is a stress response, but too much of it can affect the decisions you make in a significant way. Behavioral health care can help you manage your anxiety and reduce its effects on your life.


Obesity is a physical condition. But unhealthy behaviors can play a role in its development. By changing these behaviors, you can manage your weight in a way that improves your long-term physical health.

What services does behavioral health include?

Behavioral health plans at Vantage Medical Associates PC usually include more than one treatment. The mix of treatments will depend on the behaviors you want to target, your personal preferences, and any other conditions affecting you.

The team starts with a careful assessment and might perform diagnostic tests to look for underlying conditions contributing to your behaviors. They then create an individualized treatment plan. The team collaborates to offer:

  • Counseling
  • Dietary changes
  • Stress management
  • Physical exercise
  • Medication management

You’ll report back to the team throughout your behavioral health plan so that they can track your progress and offer support. In-person visits are available as well as telehealth check-ins for your convenience.
