Behavioral Health Q & A

What is behavioral health?

Behavioral health is another term for mental health. In behavioral health care at PivotCare Precision Psychiatry, experienced mental health specialists guide patients through challenging times, from diagnosis to treatment.

Behavioral health care helps you understand how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors play into your mental and physical wellness. 

When do I need behavioral health care?

Behavioral health care can help if you’re having mental health difficulties or going through challenging times emotionally. Some of the many issues PivotCare Precision Psychiatry can help with are:

  • Anxiety 
  • Panic attacks
  • Major depression
  • Postpartum depression
  • Treatment-resistant depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Stress
  • Grief
  • Trauma
  • Loneliness
  • Worry
  • Alcohol or drug dependence (substance use disorder)

If you recognize any of these issues or simply need someone to talk to, behavioral health care can help. 

Additionally, behavioral health care is part of collaborative primary care. Many physical problems, like heart attack, stroke, and Lyme disease, to name a few, can also have serious mental side effects. Collaborative primary care helps you manage those side effects as part of your overall medical treatment plan. 

What can I expect from behavioral health treatment?

With behavioral health treatment at PivotCare Precision Psychiatry, you’ll work closely with a dynamic and highly experienced mental health professional. Treatment often includes two main focuses. 


Medication management refers to the use of medications such as antidepressants. Most antidepressants work by increasing serotonin and other brain chemicals. This, in turn, can boost mood along with other positive effects. But medications affect everyone differently. 

Precision psychiatry helps identify the specific medication that will be most effective for you through genetic blood testing. Testing can even help your provider select the right dose and treatment intervals so you can get symptom relief fast.


Multiple Therapy Modalities

As with medication management, psychotherapy and counseling considers your unique needs. Your provider works with you to identify problems, develop solutions, and implement your treatment plansas well as specific instructions. 

Therapy can help you become happier, more confident, and clearer about where you’re going in life. You always have a support system to rely on, and since your provider manages both your medication and your therapy, they can ensure you’ve got the most personalized behavioral health plan possible. 

Seeking behavioral health care takes courage, but doing so can help you create long-term change and a whole new life. Book an appointment online or call the PivotCare Precision Psychiatry office today.
