Behavioral Health Q & A

What is behavioral health?

Behavioral health refers to how habits, patterns, and behaviors affect your mental and physical health. Mental health disorders and some nonmental disorders fall into the behavioral health category, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Substance abuse
  • Eating disorders

At House Call Doctors of Pacific Northwest PLLC, the team of experienced practitioners can help with all types of behavioral health problems. 

When might I need help with behavioral health?

Behavioral health issues can affect your life in a very negative way, including changes or issues such as:

  • Persistent sadness
  • Excessive energy or lack of energy
  • Unintended appetite and weight changes 
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Major mood swings
  • Angry outbursts
  • Losing interest in your favorite things
  • Social withdrawal
  • Difficulty meeting responsibilities
  • Negative habit changes, like failing to shower or change clothing regularly 

Sometimes it can be difficult to recognize these signs in yourself, but you might suddenly realize that you just don’t feel like yourself or that your life has changed in ways you don’t like. 

Parents may recognize behavioral problems in their children when at home, in public settings, or around friends. Or, your child’s teacher may tell you that your child is being disruptive, disengaged, or has other issues at school. 

All of these scenarios point to the need for behavioral health support at House Call Doctors of Pacific Northwest PLLC.

What does behavioral health care cover?

You can access behavioral health care in the Snohomish and Everett offices and in the comfort of your own home through house calls or video visits. The main facets of behavioral health care include:

Diagnosis

Diagnosis involves a medical history and a complete review of your symptoms. You may need some mental health tests. If the team suspects any physical issues, you may need blood tests or other forms of diagnostic testing. This allows the team to make an accurate diagnosis.

Medication

Many behavioral health disorders benefit from medications specific to the problem. The team can identify the type of medication that best relieves your symptoms. For many people struggling with their behavioral health, the right medication can dramatically improve your quality of life.

You may also need counseling, so the team can refer you to a leading counselor nearby who can help.
