Mental Health Awareness Month | Mood Lifters: A Novel Mental Wellness Program
In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, Dr. Patricia Deldin, U-M Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, provides an overview and update since the 2019 launch of the program Mood Lifters, a peer-led, instant access, affordable and science-based program designed to improve mental wellness and decrease sadness and anxiety. At any given time, 70% of people report feeling stress and over 30% report symptoms of anxiety and depression. Many do not feel comfortable visiting a psychologist or psychiatrist to get help. They want to get better on their own. They are afraid to be labeled as “crazy” or seen as weak. Others cannot afford the high cost of traditional mental health care. Often people can’t find well trained providers who provide the latest, scientifically proven care. At this lecture, Dr Patricia Deldin will describe an alternative to traditional mental health care—Mood Lifters.
Mood Lifters weaves together the most effective biological, psychological and social techniques, based on cutting edge research, to provide strategies that people can use to make changes, develop healthy habits and live the life they want. Mood Lifters was developed by a University of Michigan professor and is scientifically proven to reduce depression and anxiety and increase joy and empowerment.
I attended the full program and loved it, so I was hoping to see the speaker, but I think this is in-person.
