Evidence-Based Approaches to Mental Health

We will explore the scientific research underlying the appropriate use of non-pharmaceutical methods in the optimization of mental health, operating on the principle that effective interventions that are natural and less invasive should be considered when possible. We will also discuss broader concepts of health promotion, prevention of mental illness, and lifestyle modifications to reduce burden of disease. The series will include the following topics: nutritional therapies, dietary supplements, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, phytotherapy, light therapy, manual medicine, mind-body approaches, self-tracking and data driven treatment, behavioral activation, and exercise.

Classes are taught via Zoom and billed as shared medical appointment with physician specialist.
