Integrative mental health

The first article from my PhD was published today (yes I’m excited) in a special Integrative Mental Health edition of the journal Advances in Integrative Medicine edited by Jerome Sarris—a prominent researcher in this area. This edition is open access, so I would encourage anyone with an interest in this emerging area of research and approach to treatment to have a read.

With mental health problems becoming more prominent and more people seeking complementary treatments that can enhance conventional care, this area of research is important. Complementary medicines such as herbal medicines are starting to build an evidence base that is demonstrating that they have an important role to play in treating mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression.

Watch this space for more on the research in this field as this is just the beginning.
