Integrative mental health is a recent advance in mental health care. Like holistic psychiatry it attends to body, mind and spirit; but, "Integrative" also brings you the most effective treatments from all cultures. It goes beyond the limitations of psychiatric medications and may replace the need for them.
At your convenience. Anytime.
All online. Presentation includes practical remedies and lots of cartoons, a 49-minute slide show, recommended books, websites, and many other resources and contacts.
You will learn:
- How to support your well being/ recovery with integrative mental healthcare
- Simplest is often best
- What’s tried and true over time.
Get perspective on the mythologies underlying the effectiveness of psychiatric medications and enter into the world of effective non-drug treatments for mental health issues with the integrative mental health paradigm. Although drugs do have their time and place, and can even save lives, we suggest you start caring for yourself in more natural ways that are highly effective before turning to the drugs that disrupt brain function and may have very severe side-effects. They simply don't work for some people.
