Behavioral Health

Behavioral health care refers to an integrated, interdisciplinary system of care related to mental health and substance use disorders that approaches individuals, families, and communities as a whole and addresses the interactions between psychological, biological, sociocultural, and environmental factors.

The National Indian Health Board’s (NIHB) Behavioral Health program strives to support the development of programs that respect culture and Tribal sovereignty, and promote the balance between the mind, body, heart and spirit. In keeping with this focus, NIHB brings Tribal governments timely information to support health care policy analysis and decision-making.
