Integrative Medicine & Mental Health Issues

Date/Time

Oct 10, 2013
07:30 PM

Description

Dr. Katherine Takayasu from Stamford Hospital’s Center for Integrative Medicine & Wellness speaks about the uses and efficacy of integrative medicine practices for those with mental health issues, and as stress management techniques for their families and loved ones.

Evidence based and scientifically validated, the holistic (whole-person) approach can be part of a coordinated therapeutic plan to treat such conditions as anxiety, depression, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

A board-certified family doctor, Dr. Takayasu will present information about integrating complementary modalities—such as mind-body therapies, physician-administered acupuncture, nutritional counseling, trigger point injections, and botanical and supplement consulting—into a multidisciplinary and effective treatment plan for mental health consumers. Mindfulness-based stress reduction practices and hypnosis are among the techniques useful for loved ones and care givers.

Ample time for questions and answers will follow the presentation.

Hosted by the Stamford/Greenwich affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the event is open to the public and free of charge.
