Whole Health and What Drives It

We are taking a holistic view that can transform health. It’s one that considers not just traditional physical factors, but behavioral and social factors too. This makes it clear that health is the result of our daily experiences and circumstances, from what we eat and where we live to our place of employment and how we get to work. When we consider the whole person, and the factors that influence their health, we can make lasting positive change.

Improving Preventive Behavioral Health to Avoid a Crisis

As the health system evolves to a whole-health approach, prevention of illness and a focus on overall well-being becomes ever more prominent. This shift in focus may be most noticeable and most needed in behavioral health. It’s far too common for people to reach a behavioral health crisis before getting the support and treatment they need.

A preventive mental health and substance use approach requires two fundamental shifts in public sentiment. The first is toward widespread acceptance that behavioral health is health. The second is to decrease negative stereotypes around seeking diagnosis and treatment.

Understanding the physical, behavioral, and social drivers of behavioral health conditions can illuminate the best path forward for each person.
