Traditionally, mental health has focused on illness rather than wellness. More recently, the field of mental health has adopted the very old concept of wellness into clinical practice. Instead of focusing solely on symptom reduction, some practitioners in mental health have incorporated wellness into their treatment plans. Others have created practices based solely on the concept of wellness. This session will consider the power of creating a wellness-based practice by reviewing its 5 key elements: exercise, meditation, sleep, connectedness, and nutrition. In addition to exploring these 5 wellness principles, Dr. Jain will review a small pilot study researching the combination of such wellness elements in a 30-day program.
