Features assessments, prescribing templates and tools for healthcare professionals to use in practice
Almost half of all Australian adults will face mental health challenges during their lives - 1 in 5 will experience this each year. Both government and peak mental health bodies acknowledge an imperative to shift how we engage with mental health, and that Australians urgently require a system that acts early.
Motivated by these overwhelming issues - Dr Lesley Braun has developed a supportive model of care - The Mental Wellbeing Spiral – a tool which reflects the continuum/spectrum of mental health. Written in the same style as her successful Herbs and Natural Supplements book – you can expect to see a fully referenced, practitioner-focussed resource.
Chapters 1 and 2 provide the clinical framework and sets a foundational understanding of the area of stress and mental wellbeing.
Chapters 3, 4 and 5 contains easy-to-read descriptive reviews of the clinical evidence and recommendations for practice.
Chapter 6 lists dietary and lifestyle recommendations which should be a standard part of nearly every prescription aiming to achieve better mental wellbeing.
