Behavioral health therapy is a way of helping people with mental health disorders by changing their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. It can be combined with medication for more effective treatment. There are different types of behavioral therapy that can treat various conditions, such as anxiety, depression and phobias. Treatment for mental health conditions is not a one size fits all approach. FHH uses a patient centered approach where each person is treated according to their own need and their own personally developed treatment plan.
Psychotherapy, also known as “talk therapy,” is when a person speaks with a trained therapist in a safe and confidential environment to explore and understand feelings and behaviors and gain coping skills. Talk therapy can touch on topics such as past and current problems, experiences, thoughts, feelings or relationship experiences. The therapist works with the patient, families, couples and groups.
Types of therapies used can include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma Therapy, as well as many other theories.
