The Essential Guide to Using Herbs and Nutritional Supplements

Mental Wellbeing Book Dr Lesley Braun

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.
