Behavioral Health and Its Role at ANA

May 8, 2014

Behavioral health is a branch of interdisciplinary health that focuses on the relationship between a holistic view of human behavior and the well-being of the body as a whole. Native communities develop behavioral health programs to include culture-specific activities or treatment that integrate traditional practices and Western medicine in the context of health and wellness at all levels: individual, families, and community.

This webinar will explore the trend of Native communities using community-based projects and programs to develop cultural-based activities to enhance the well-being of the community.
