Diaphragmatic Breathing

The practice of diaphragmatic breathing, or "belly breathing," can help improve your health in a multitude of way, such as better sleep and improved digestion. This type of breathing focuses on using the diaphragm—or breathing with the belly—and taking deep, slow breaths.

The Power of Sleep

Sleep has a powerful effect on both your mental and physical health in a wide variety of ways. Losing just a few hours of sleep across several nights can weaken your focus and ability to function while getting enough sleep can promote whole-body wellness.

Is Your Teen Depressed?

Depression in youth ages 12 to 17 is fairly common, with 13.3% of teenagers having experienced a major depressive episode. Additionally, 3.2% of children age 3 and older have received a diagnosis of depression. There are proven ways your family can help.

Screening Tools for Integrated Care Providers

To identify symptoms early, screening for behavioral health conditions should be conducted universally for all adult patients and regularly, such as on an annual basis. Early detection helps address conditions before they worsen or become chronic, and regular screening for all patients helps capture conditions that patients may not self-report.
