What are the Best Behavioral Health Solution Options

Behavioral health encompasses the emotional, psychological and social well-being of individuals. In the United States, it’s estimated that 1 in 5 adults lives with a mental illness, and almost half don’t seek professional help. There are a number of reasons why this is the case, including not knowing how to find care or what type of care to seek.

VNA Health Group is working to make behavioral health services more attainable for individuals and families. We offer a wide range of behavioral health solutions through the Children and Family Health Institute (CFHI), including early intervention and special child health services.

Let’s cover the best behavioral health solution options available for those in need.

Early Intervention Programs

Prevention and early intervention programs aim to identify and address behavioral health challenges before they escalate. In New Jersey, early intervention services are available for children ages 3 and younger.

These interventions identify developmental delays and behavioral health concerns that may interfere with proper development. Seeking care early increases the likelihood of successful outcomes and decreases the need for special education and other services in later life.

Digital and Telehealth Solutions

Virtual therapy sessions, online counseling platforms and mental health apps provide individuals with access to behavioral health support from the comfort of their own homes. These options are particularly beneficial for those who may have limited access to in-person services, live in remote areas or prefer the flexibility of online support.

Therapy and Counseling

Therapy and counseling are fundamental behavioral health solutions that provide a safe and confidential space for individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions and behaviors. There are various therapeutic approaches available, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).

Research shows that therapy can be more effective than medications because it helps individuals explore their issues and develop healthy coping strategies. Medication also has its benefits, but it does not address the root issues of behavioral health problems.

Support Groups

Support groups provide a valuable platform for individuals facing similar challenges to come together, share experiences and receive support from others. They can be found in various formats, including in-person meetings, online communities or facilitated group therapy sessions.

Self-Care and Lifestyle Changes

Engaging in self-care practices and making positive lifestyle changes can significantly impact behavioral health. The right services can promote a healthy lifestyle by introducing individuals to:

  • Mindfulness and meditation
  • Regular exercise
  • Nutritious eating
  • Healthy sleeping patterns
  • Engaging in hobbies
  • Visiting the doctor regularly
  • Scheduling yearly screenings and exams
