Anyone — any age, gender, income, race or religion — can develop a behavioral health condition, like depression. These conditions are linked to brain functioning. And they can affect how someone thinks, feels and acts.  Sometimes, a condition is mild. Other times, it is more serious and long lasting. Either way, recovery is always possible. But first, a condition must be diagnosed and treated.  If you are coping with a behavioral health condition, there is good news. Your medical plan includes behavioral health benefits. That means we’re here with the help you need to work toward recovery. So that you can get back to being your best.
