Recent findings suggest that the state of our financial well-being contributes more to our behavioral health than previously understood. Yet, financial capability and asset building (FCAB) has not historically been recognized as a central tenet when assessing or treating behavioral health conditions. Understanding the relationship between financial wellness and behavioral health is important for clinicians, academics, and students. This session will provide an overview of the importance of integrating financial capability perspectives in addressing behavioral health and the impact both domains have on each other, introduce evidence-based financial and psychosocial interventions and assessment options, and highlight emerging issues of which practitioners should be aware of.
