Behavioural health is related to many lifestyle factors, such as diet, exercise, stress, drug use, social relationships, and interactions.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a mixed impact on the growth of the global behavioural health market. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the dynamics of the healthcare sector globally.

As most healthcare professionals began offering digital care, the volume of patient visits increased, and the impact was greater during the pandemic.

The growing number of people with mental illnesses is also supplementing the behavioural health market's growth. According to the BrandEssence Market Research Survey, nearly 1 billion individuals worldwide suffer from a mental illness, and in low-income nations, more than 75% of those affected go untreated. Each year, nearly 3 million people lose their lives due to drug misuse. Also, as per statistics, a suicide occurs in every 40 seconds. Thus, this rising number of adults, children, and the elderly with serious mental illness has increased the need for behavioural health treatment. This increase in mental health problems is mainly due to stress, peer pressure, and social and economic constraints. Thus, it is supplementing the behavioural health market's growth.
Likewise, one of the major factors in the growth of the behavioural health market is the increasing awareness of mental health issues. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in cases of mental health disorders. This is one of the biggest reasons behind the growth of the global behavioural health market. There are two factors at play in this enormous surge. One of the biggest reasons is that the taboos that previously prevented the development of the mental health space are now receding at a rapid pace. There are many social media influencers as well as hugely popular celebrities who have come out and talked about their mental health issues. This has helped create general awareness of the importance of seeking medical and professional help for mental health problems. For instance, as per the news published, on July 21, 2021, Deepika Padukone which is an famous Indian has opened about being private about her mental illness in the months leading up to her diagnosis. Thus, open awareness about the treatment and decreasing taboos are helping the growth of the global behavioural health market.
In addition, rising government initiatives are boosting the growth of the behavioural health market. For instance, as per the news published, on April 18th, 2018; the adoption of electronic health records in India is in its infancy. Various steps need to be taken by the concerned parties to adopt it at the national level. The government has taken various initiatives behavioural promote the use of EHR in India. Some of the key and important factors likely to have a positive impact include increased government initiatives to encourage EHR adoption in behavioural health organizations, increased coverage of favourable behavioural health reforms, easier access to government funding, increased adoption of behavioural health software, an increase in the number of patients suffering from mental disorders, an increase in demand for mental health services, and social acceptance of mental health problems.
Moreover, low awareness of treatment options among the general population and the limited availability of primary care services associated with behavioural health may hinder the growth of the global behavioural health market. Despite that, the increasing popularity of telehealth as a delivery method for healthcare services may create more opportunities in the global behavioural health market.
Geographically, North America is holding a major share in the global behavioural health market within the forecast period due to the increasing cases of mental disorders, rising geriatric population, and growing awareness regarding mental health these factors boost the market.

Therefore, the increasing prevalence of mental disorders is expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period. In addition, the rising geriatric population is another factor supplementing the behavioural health market growth in this region. For instance, according to Rural Health Information Hub, on April 6th, 2019; there were 46 million people aged 65 in the United States. The number of elderly populations is projected to double to 90 million by 2050. The geriatric population results in the growth of the global behavioural health market.
Europe is the fastest-growing region in the global behavioural health market due to increasing cases of mental disorders, rising awareness about mental disorders, and improvements in the accessibility of behavioural healthcare these factors boost the market.
