Integrated Care: Health and Wellness
Mind. Body. Spirit.
A whole person is made up of the three parts – mind, body, spirit. Each of the parts has a direct impact on the other but, for too long, we separated the disciplines of mental health, physical health and spiritual health. We treated them separately and independently. At Northern Lakes CMH Authority we are changing our approach and providing care in a new way. We recognize the emotional effects of physical diseases as well as the effects of trauma on both physical and emotional health and healing.
We are helping people with their mental illness, intellectual/developmental disability and/or substance use disorder at the same time we are helping them to manage their chronic illnesses and injuries and learn about prevention, health and wellness.
We are treating the whole person, in the recovery of all three parts of people… mind, body and spirit.
