Behavioral Health

One in five adults in the U.S. experience mental health issues. [1] And 50% of the people in Wisconsin with a mental health condition do not get care. There are many reasons for this. In our state, it can be hard to find a therapist or psychologist who is available when you are. And because there continues to be a stigma surrounding mental health, many people feel judged for getting care. At Health Tradition, we know that mental health is just as important as physical health. Keep reading for resources through our Health Tradition health plan that makes getting mental health care a little easier.
