1. Understanding Mental Health


Holistic Mental Health explains the relationships between the needs of our physical body, how disconnection and trauma influences our thinking, and the role of purpose in mental and emotional well-being. This course develops personal insights into current personal and community mental health issues, understanding their possible causes and exploring strategies for dealing with our own health and that of our families, friends, colleagues and workmates.


Human mental health is best understood 'holistically' as having three components: Body, Mind & Spirit - A Healthy Brain, a Clear Conscience and a 'Reason To Live'
