In brief: Holistic health

From a general perspective, inclusion of psychological health factors in a health record are valuable for monitoring and treating the "whole" person.
There is a great deal of research that demonstrates psychological factors (I.e., mental status, memory and neurocognition, general mental health, beliefs and thought patterns, ability to cope and resilience, etc.) affect health outcomes.
