Mind Energy Innovations Launch at the LaGrua Center in Stonington
I am pleased to announce formation of my new 501(c)(3) non-profit, Mind Energy Innovations (MEI,) has been approved. Its purpose is to raise consumer awareness of all-natural, holistic mental health therapies, including those that halted my bipolar symptoms in 2002.
Mind Energy Innovations will disseminate information which offers realistic HOPE for recovery to the one-out-of-four people in the world who will experience mental illness.
The National Institute of Health estimates 80-117 million US residents have mental illnesses. Yet a mere 15.7 million receive treatment annually because there are only 156,300 mental health practitioners in this country and the number is dwindling. Eighty-nine million patients live in "professional shortage areas." Forty percent cannot afford any treatment.
MEI plans to increase consumer awareness of drug-free mental health treatments through a series of educational programs, starting with release of my third book this fall. Cool Options to RESTORE Kids Mental Health will introduce a dozen affordable, holistic therapies, the founders or leading practitioners and basic science involved, as well as average treatment costs.
In early 2018, we plan to offer accredited educational seminars for medical practitioners, taught by holistic, functional, and integrative mental health leaders. This conference has a dual purpose. First, help increase patient access to physicians specifically trained in identifying and correcting biophysical imbalances, toxic overload, and inherited errors that contribute to mental ailments. Second, by featuring experienced and inspiring experts in this emerging field, medical students may choose to pursue this rewarding career, increasing the number of US mental health practitioners over time.
If you live in southeastern Connecticut, I hope you will come to the launch of Mind Energy Innovations at LaGrua Center in Stonington Borough on Thursday, April 6 at 6:00 pm. The meeting will open with a brief talk about MEI, answer questions from the audience, and conclude with refreshments.
