Health and Social Work Publication
I am honored and humbled to announce that my MSW/MPH Capstone project titled, Evidence and Feasibility of Implementing an Integrated Wellness Program in Northeast Georgia, was published today in the Health and Social Work!
As evident in the OrgANNic Wellness brand, mission and service line, I am passionate about integrated wellness services that address all aspects of well-being.
The abstract from my project is below:
Evidence for the connection between physical and mental health is growing, as is interest in providing a holistic, mind–body approach to improving mental health and wellness. A needs assessment in northeast Georgia identified several regional health priorities, including mental health and substance abuse, access to care, and cardiovascular health. The study's purpose is threefold: to (1) review evidence for integrated mind–body wellness services, (2) explore the feasibility of implementing wellness services in a small mental health agency serving northeast Georgia, and (3) conduct a brief survey assessing interest in a wellness program.
I'd like to give a special shout out to my advisor, mentor and co-author, Dr. Trina Salm Ward.
