Wellness in Mental Health: Examining its Neurobiology and Clinical Application

This is a private live event for members of the Pennsylvania Society of Physicians Assistants.

Stress can have a negative impact on mental health and wellbeing. Interventions that address specific areas of wellness (such as exercise, mindfulness, sleep, social connectedness, nutrition) may be of benefit in some clinical situations. This presentation will examine the neurobiology of wellness interventions and highlight potential clinical implications. The strategies discussed during this program emphasize not only the importance of educating patients on the concept of wellness, but also on the critical need for ensuring accountability in any wellness approach.
