Mental Health – Approaching through Integrative Psychiatry
Mental health is an integral part of health. Without mental health, there is no health.
Along those lines, we all know we should be eating right, exercising, making lifestyle choices that are responsible for good health. However, those are choices usually associated with physical health, not mental health.
Dr. Greenblatt discusses with us stress, depression, schizophrenia, and yes, the what seems to be, a recent epidemic of suicides. Did you know that most people who commit suicide had sought health treatment in the last 30 days before the suicide?
