In mental health, we’re trained to focus on reduction of symptoms, achieving remission, and improving outcomes; and as a result, may overlook the power of wellness as a treatment strategy. The goal of this session is to highlight the importance of wellness in everyday clinical practice. Dr. Jain will review different elements of wellness and the neurobiological changes seen as a result of wellness behaviors and activities. Four mental wellness traits—happiness, enthusiasm, resilience, and optimism—will also be discussed, along with practical tips on how these traits can be enhanced through wellness interventions in our practices.
