GREENVILLE—One in four Americans suffers from a mental health condition. Behavioral health, or mental health, is a term used to refer to fields related to the study, assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental illness and substance abuse. 

The aim of Mental Health Awareness Month is to raise awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and its preventive factors and benefits for mind and body.

Programs offered through Vidant Health offer a number of methods suitable to each patient’s situation.
