Presenters: Hailey Buchhorn & Riley Bartholomew, Guardian Exercise Rehabilitation
Best practice treatment for mental illness is no longer defined by the typical offering of just pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. Instead, a more collaborative and whole person wellbeing offering which now includes what is termed “lifestyle psychiatry” has been shown to be more effective, and to support a durable recovery.
Lifestyle psychiatry incorporates optimal nutrition and regular and routine exercise. Hailey and Riley will discuss the practical application of exercise physiology for people with a psychological injury – as well as their insights from working exclusively in occupational injury schemes.
