Integrative Psychiatry Q&A

What is integrative psychiatry?

Integrative psychiatry, a comprehensive approach to mental health care, seamlessly blends traditional psychiatric methods with alternative techniques. It recognizes the importance of a holistic and well-rounded approach.

While conventional psychiatry primarily incorporates medication and therapy, integrative methods go further to include lifestyle, nutrition, and complementary therapies.

Who is a candidate for integrative psychiatry?

Anybody struggling with mental health concerns will benefit from integrative psychiatry, especially if they’re:

  • Interested in a holistic approach to care
  • Unsatisfied with strictly conventional methods
  • Hoping to address mental health within the context of their overall health
  • Seeking personalized mental health treatment
  • Experiencing limited benefits from standard psychiatric practices
  • Looking to be involved in their treatment
  • Suffering from conditions affected by stress or trauma

After an initial consultation, April and the Head Well team work with you to develop an integrative plan that addresses your needs.

Comprehensive psychiatric evaluation

Diet and daily habits play a crucial role in mental health. They affect your energy levels, mood, and cognitive function. April and the team guide you in making healthy choices that support your well-being.

Stress management techniques

Teaching you practical techniques to respond to stress helps you feel more balanced and in control of your emotional well-being.
