We sponsor symposia to build new mental health protocols, treatment strategies and a new standard of care focused on long-term recovery. We help other groups come together in a spirit of neutrality by providing event planning and fiscal agency services. Rising above the politicization of issues ensures that our philanthropists are effective in helping the mental health care community move towards viable solutions.
This fully facilitated, interactive 8-week course helps individuals and families transform and heal from the emotional distress associated with trauma and challenges that may be associated with diagnoses such as schizophrenia, major depression, bipolar, anxiety and other disorders.
Family recovery education and support have been shown to dramatically improve the quality of life for all family members—those in active distress and the family as a whole. In fact, family education and support can reduce relapse and re-hospitalization rates by as much as 75 percent, according to studies compiled by the Office of Mental Health Research and Training at the University of Kansas.
ISNPR 2017 will be the first major international meeting for ISNPR and is timed to abut the American Psychological Association Conference in Washington, DC. ISNPR 2017 will reflect the broad spectrum of research, from the sub-cellular to translation and implementation science. The program will cater to the interests of researchers and clinicians from the fields of psychiatry and psychology, as well as public health, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, dietetics and integrative medicine. There will also be a strong focus on basic science and the biological processes and factors that underpin the links between diet, nutrition and mental health, including the microbe-gut-brain axis, immunological and metabolic processes and molecular science. A full day of workshops will be offered, led by leading clinicians and academics from Columbia University, Harvard and The University of Melbourne.
Symposium submissions are welcome until Friday, March 3.
eCPR is a public health educational program designed to teach people to assist others through an emotional crisis by three simple steps: Connecting, Empowering and Revitalizing. Through a combination of presentations, interactive discussions and dynamic practice exercises with reflecting teams, participants will learn about and practice the key concepts involved in effectively supporting a person through an emotional crisis and into healing.
Mad in America Continuing Education (MIACE) believes that the current drug-based paradigm of care has failed our society, and that scientific research, as well as the lived experience of those who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, points to the need for profound change. Its courses are integral to promoting such change. They are taught by leading researchers and practitioners in the field, provide a scientific critique of the existing paradigm of care, and tell of alternative approaches that could serve as the foundation for a new paradigm, one that de-emphasizes the use of psychiatric medications, particularly over the long-term.
