What Is Integrative Psychiatry?

Integrative psychiatry is a holistic approach that uses both conventional and complementary therapies in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. Personalized treatments are developed to suit each person's lifestyle and strengthen self-awareness and resources for self-care. These treatments may include:

  • Functional and nutritional assessments of individual health differences and needs, which can be addressed in a natural manner through diet, exercise, and/or supplements
  • Mind-body centering exercises that increase the relaxation response
  • Guided imagery to engage the mind in the healing process
  • gentle bodywork to promote relaxation
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

What Are the Indications for Integrative Psychiatry?

The Center is involved in ongoing research into the benefits of integrative psychiatry for the following disorders:

  • People who want to take responsibility for their well-being by addressing the effects on health of lifestyle, emotions, and social interactions
  • Individuals who have not tolerated or responded optimally to traditional psychiatric treatments
  • Individuals with post-traumatic stress disorders, depression, anxiety, perimenopausal symptoms, and phobias

What Are the Contraindications for Integrative Psychiatry?

  • Individuals with active suicidality or psychosis may require a more intensive level of psychiatric care.
