Resources & Publications: Behavioral Health

Behavioral health refers to treatment and services to address mental health problems or drug and alcohol abuse. Coverage depends on the type of health insurance, but accessing behavioral health services is frequently different from accessing physical health care.

PHLP publications are intended to provide general legal information, not legal advice.  If you have questions about how the law applies to your particular situation, please consult a lawyer or call the Helpline at 1-800-274-3258.
