Integrated Care for a Disintegrated World
This one-day conference will be filled with thought-provoking keynote speakers, engaging panel discussions, and immersive workshops designed to inspire critical conversations and take a deeper dive into exploring collaboration between psychiatry, psychotherapy, and mind-body modalities to effectively treat mental wellbeing of patients.
Our inaugural theme - Integrated Care for a Disintegrated World - explores how the COVID-19 pandemic has been the singular shared adverse community experience of our time. The impact of the pandemic created an environment of chronic stress that closed the window of tolerance and resulted in a society more fragile and brittle in managing distress.
However, the pandemic also presented an opportunity to revisit the conventional model of mental health initiatives and reimagine one where the whole person is seen and heard, with approaches that bring the whole person into understanding; building beyond general medicine and psychiatry. Proposing a truly whole person, whole life experience perspective to clinical care, incorporating psychiatry, psychotherapy, integrative approaches, and mind-body modalities required for the recovery of self, family, community, and a world so worthy of rescue.View Agenda
