SUN Behavioral Health Says Behavioral Health Is Increasingly Important In Our Society

Red Bank, New Jersey-based SUN Behavioral Health says behavioral health has become an increasingly important service in modern society. With growing national reach, SUN Behavioral Health has dedicated themselves to making a difference across the United States.

According to SUN Behavioral, there has been a marked improvement in how society treats behavioral health needs in the modern world. Where behavioral health was once considered not equal to physical health, that mindset has been slowly changing over the years. Now, with many mental health issues being public knowledge, people have begun to grasp the importance of behavioral health as well as the problems that could arise when those struggling with these issues are not given the right support.

"What is exciting, I think, for behavioral health is that we quite literally moved from the basement, in terms of priority, to one of the most critical specialties," said Steve Page, President and CEO of SUN Behavioral Health. “A lot of naysayers who didn’t believe in behavioral health have now changed their tune about it — and this is a very important development. Now we can talk about behavioral health issues openly and eliminate the stigma surrounding these topics, which means that people who are struggling with these issues can reach out and ask for help without worrying about how they will be perceived.”

According to Page, the shift in focus towards behavioral health can be credited to society's growing awareness around mental health needs. In addition, many patients have what are referred to as co-occurring conditions. This means those with mental health illnesses may also have substance use disorders, among other possible conditions, thereby increasing the need for preventative care. People struggling with addiction can only be truly helped by a holistic method that treats more than just the physical manifestations of their illness, making behavioral health services a critical need in today’s world.

At SUN Behavioral Health, Page leads a team of dedicated, compassionate professionals who are committed to improving the health and well-being of the people and communities they serve. To this end, the hospital partners with emergency rooms, doctors, schools and social service agencies to solve the unmet behavioral health needs that exist in neighborhoods across the country. According to their website, SUN Behavioral Health’s top priority is delivering positive outcomes for their patients and their families, from education about the recovery process to programs that save and enhance life.

As more than 43 million US adults experience mental illness every year, SUN Behavioral Health assures those struggling with addiction or any other mental health issue that they are not alone. If someone needs help, they are encouraged to get in touch with SUN Behavioral Health, where counselors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help with everything from urgent situations to questions about the programs offered by the hospital.

As they state on their website, "the mission of SUN Behavioral Health is to partner with communities to solve the unmet needs of those who suffer from mental illness and addiction. Their values of safety, teamwork, integrity and compassion are all targeted to help further this mission. Our values reflect the behaviors that our employees determined to be essential to providing best-in-class services. A company-wide nomination process led to the formation of our Values Committee, 15 people across three of our hospitals, who led the process to create SUN’s values. Our four values of Safety, Teamwork, Integrity, and Compassion are at the core of what we do. Each value reflects behaviors that we hold ourselves to on behalf of our patients and their loved ones as well as each other.”
