Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia
Anxiety and depressive disorders are characterized by significant functional limitations and comorbid mental and physical health conditions that diminish quality of life and sense of well-being. Behavioral medicine, an interdisciplinary field combining medicine and psychology, provides increasingly popular evidence-based approaches to the remediation and healing of mental and physical health concerns and the emergence of wellness.
By the year 2044, more than half of Americans in the U.S. will identify as part of a minority group. And a significant percentage will seek clinical care for anxiety, depression, and other mental health illnesses.
