Support for Mental Health or Substance Use
Behavioral health refers to the prevention and treatment of mental health conditions and substance use disorders. Behavioral health issues are common, and you don’t need a referral from your primary care doctor to see a behavioral health provider. Read on to learn more about different types of mental health and substance use disorders and treatments. Learn how to find and access virtual care providers for Behavioral Health services. When you’re ready to find a provider to help, use our Find a Doctor tool to search for in-network options.
Mental health concerns may impact someone’s thinking, feeling, or mood. They can also affect interactions with others, daily functions, and decision-making. Common mental health conditions include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
Emotional troubles or concerns are not uncommon and are worth asking about. If any of the disorders described on this page sound like something you or someone you love might be experiencing, it will be helpful to speak with:
- Your primary care doctor since he or she knows your health history best. Learn more about why a relationship with your primary care doctor is important.
- A trusted family member or friend.
- An MVP case manager. They can help with the questions you should ask your doctor and point you in the right direction for care.
