Adults with mental-health conditions are more likely to develop chronic physical comorbidities, largely due to lifestyle-related factors. The impact of implementing healthy lifestyle changes on mood, cognition, and psychosocial well-being has been underestimated. In this session, learn how to use lifestyle-based approaches to mental health treatment, including interventions targeted at social participation, stress coping, planning and time-management, eating and exercise routines, and sleep.
Following this presentation, the practitioner will be able to:
· Describe the physiological, psychological, and behavioral impacts of stress, anxiety, depression, and substance-use disorders and understand their impact on chronic conditions.
· Identify strategies and techniques to design, document, and bill for lifestyle-based OT interventions to address a variety of mental health diagnoses.
