Integrative mental health care focuses on a person-centered approach by taking into account the unique needs, preferences, and circumstances of each client. This philosophy focuses on obtaining optimal health by taking into consideration all the factors and not the disorder alone.
Integrative mental health care uses mainstream psychotherapy methods with evidenced-based complementary alternative medicine strategies. It utlises the best available evidence from both conventional medicine and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for gaining a deeper understanding of the mind-body-spirit connection and brain function.
In addition, using a holistic approach rooted in understanding a patients mental wellness is all about harmonizing the complex system of the mind, body, and spirit to achieve holistic wellness.
