There are three primary areas of behavioral health care, and for each area there are a variety of programs and services to help consumers of all ages.

Mental Health

The term mental health includes a broad range of conditions that affect emotional, psychological, and neurological well being. Mental disorders cause distress and/or disability and increase a person's risk of death, pain, or loss of freedom. Examples of familiar mental disorders are anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and schizophrenia.

Some programs that help restore a person's positive outlook on life include:
1. Individual and group outpatient therapy
2. Psychosocial rehabilitation
3. Children's day treatment
4. Case management
5. Hospital inpatient care

Developmental Disabilities

Developmental disabilities are severe chronic disabilities that are identified before a person reaches age 22, and which result in limitations in some of the following areas: self-care, language, independent living and learning, mobility, self-destruction, and earning a living. In other words, people with developmental disabilities are likely to need considerable assistance in their day to day lives. Mental retardation is one example of a developmental disability. Some programs that assist people to increase their skills and abilities include:

1. Supported employment
2. Supported living
3. Case management
4. Respite care
5. Outpatient therapy

Substance Abuse

The use of any mood altering substance (alcohol and drugs are most common) that adversely affects the user's ability to live successfully is considered substance abuse. Addiction to alcohol, drugs, and other substances generally means compulsive (uncontrollable) use of the substance and results in symptoms of withdrawal when the substance is not used. Both legal and illegal substances can result in substance abuse. Programs that improve the lives of persons and families suffering from substance disorders include:

1. Intensive outpatient treatment
2. Detoxification
3. Individual and group therapy
4. Parenting groups
5. DWI services
6. Supervised living
7. Relapse prevention
