What is Brain Health?

The brain, like other organs in the body, has specific functions like sleep, awake, concentration, and so forth.  

Thinking, feeling, and behavior are also part of your brain’s functions. Sometimes these functions can overwork or underperform, causing you to experience suffering and making it harder for you to reach your goals. When this happens for a while, and sometimes in cycles, we call it specific names (some examples below), to help identify which brain functions are off and to explore ways to help build your brain health back.

Some common problems include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood Disorders
  • Mental Disorders
  • Alcohol Use Disorder
  • Drug Use and Addiction
