Thinking Outside the Box: An Integrative Approach to Mental Health

Space is limited. There is no cost to attend. Reserve your place before Wed, November 1, 2017.


This workshop will explore the integrative approach to mental health care for the lay person. The focus is on enhancing awareness of holistic practices and how they can be applied to managing treatment and overall well-being. Presenters will delve into specific mental health diagnoses such as Mood Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Anxiety, giving participants a better understanding of why standard medicine may not be as effective, and what then can be used to potentially promote more treatment-based success. Some limited hands-on demonstrations will offer a closer look at what Integrative Care can be.


Designed for clinicians, direct care workers, administrators and other professionals with an interest in holistic approaches to mental health.


  • Enhance understanding of the philosophy and tools within Integrative Care
  • Share the types of holistic/integrative measures that can be applied in managing specific diagnoses
  • Provide hands-on experience with the various elements of Integrative Care


This meeting is made possible with generous support provided by
Henry J. and Erna D. Leir Foundation.
