Behavioral Health Definition

When we consider the question what is behavioral health, there is no real definition. However, there are a lot of therapies used to address behavioral mental wellness with perhaps the prime one being CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy).

There is a thought that contributes to behavioral health definition that comes from Buddha: “transform your reasoning and you change your life… all that we are arises from our thoughts”. There are also a variety of studies on the subject, particularly when it comes to early emotional development. Perhaps it is useful to look at some early emotional wellness development videos to better understand the dynamics behind positive behavioral health in order to create a better definition and understanding of what is going on within someone’s mental state.

Here are 3 videos that go some way to help understanding early behavioral health building blocks:





One of the behavioral health and wellness issues that we deal with in our Plymouth Recovery College is anger when it manifests as a symptom of ingrained poorly developed behavioral health. The course has been developed for our clients who have come to understand that it is impacting negatively on their family, friends and their social life. The Understanding Your Anger course gives them an opportunity to come to terms and to express feelings and emotions that they have suppressed.

In many instances this arises from inappropriate autonomous responses to situations rooted in childhood. This is why looking at the wellness of someone is important in terms of their emotional development at an early age.  An inability to resolve emotional and mental issues in children will likely encourage a pattern of negative behavioral health throughout their teenage years and beyond. It is very important when looking at behavioral changes in a child, to advise them and seek support and help.

The Plymouth Recovery College also has level 2 for those who have completed level 1 to help clients explore their emotions in a lot more detail, in a safe environment. People self refer to our courses and all are interviewed in order to conduct a risk assessment and to ensure we create stable group dynamics. Out trainers have many years experience in delivering the Explore Your Anger and our other courses (see Recovery College link above).
