A talk with Gayathri Ramprasad about holistic approaches to mental wellness.
Around the world, people with psychiatric illness and their families dearly want solutions to alleviate their symptoms and to help them resume high-quality lives. Medications can help most mental illness sufferers, but not all, and usually not completely. At One Mind, we work hard every day to promote research to improve such solutions. Although dramatic improvements in medical treatments are possible, they may take some time to develop. For now, however, there are some emerging approaches to mental wellness which can assist many to cope with their conditions and improve their outlook.
With us this week on Brain Waves is Gayathri Ramprasad. Gayathri is author of Shadows in the Sun: Healing from Depression and Finding the Light Within, and the founder of ASHA International. Gayathri is in recovery from treatment-resistant depression, employing a range of holistic and lifestyle approaches. She has done some great work and inspired many, including me.
