30th International Conference on Mental and Behavioral Health which is to be held on November 12-13, 2018 at Melbourne, Australia.
An Understanding of Stress as Basis of Mental Health Issues Outline of workshop:Stress is the basis of all dis-ease, disease, failure and non-success – all mental health issues.The aim is to show that stress is pervasive and affects everyone and everything we do. The degree to which you are stressed (holding tension or pain within your body/mind) will affect your behaviour: mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, and therefore your mental health overall.Content:• 95% of all disease/non-success is stress-related• Stress is cumulative• Unless and until you deal with the underlying issues that are the real cause of your stress and deprogram and reprogram your conscious and subconscious mind you will never, ever be truly successful at weight management long term.- Understanding stress and where it comes from and why it keeps repeating- That stress response is a habit – if so, then it can be “unlearned”- The different types of stress and why mental health issues in the workplace need to be addressed from a different angle - That everything we do is a habit- A bit of my story- Statistics from the workplace/other places to back up claims.Conclusion:When you change how you respond to stress you will have control because you will be more aware/present.Control means choice.Choice equals freedom. 3 key Learnings:1. Stress affects everything we are and do2. Stress is cumulative3. To resolve mental health issues you need to deal with stress firstAudience participation:There will be 2 or 3 audience participation exercises.A short video - < 2mins to demonstrate one of the exercises.I will show people how to do a particular exercise in depth.There will be a live demonstration of software to show how stress can be measured, monitored and then the person can make small adjustments to change or improve. (This will require one or two audience members to volunteer.)Please let me know if there is anything else required.RegardsCeline HealyStress Resolution Specialistwww.celinehealy.comwww.stresstosuccess.com.au0408 646 firstname.lastname@example.orgParticipated as an expert guest panellist at the Workplace Mental Health & Wellbeing Conference in Sydney May 22/23rd 2018 Who should attend: Anyone who is affected by stressDetails of Presenter: Celine HealyCeline Healy, Stress and Mental Health & Wellbeing Resolution Specialist, helps companies and individuals resolve the issues behind workplace mental health, so they can move to wellbeing, within a 7- week time period.

The aging of the population presents a unique and significant challenge to the delivery of health care services in the United States. An increasingly significant challenge facing the older adult population, and our already over-burdened healthcare system, is high hospital readmission rate. sThe Care Transitions Intervention (CTI) is an evidence-based intervention aimed at supporting adults transitioning from the hospital back to the community, by encouraging self-management of disease in order to reduce the incidence of preventable re-hospitalization. However, studies that support the effectiveness of CTI have utilized primarily non-Hispanic White samples, and have routinely screened out individuals living with untreated depression, thus limiting the generalizability of CTI among older adults of color and those living with comorbid clinical depression. In a pilot randomized controlled trial, conducted as part of an intervention development study, we examined the effectiveness of CTI – with and without the addition of peer support – for a racially and ethnically diverse sample of older adults (age 60+) with a comorbid diagnosis of major depression. Study participants (N= 24) were randomly assigned to the experimental condition (CTI enhanced with peer support, n= 12) or the control condition (CTI, n= 12), and assessed over three time-points (baseline, 30 days, 60 days). We observed a significant decline in health-related quality of life (QOL) after being discharged from the hospital among those without peer support, whereas those who received peer support either maintained QOL scores, or, in the case of Latino/Hispanics, improved in QOL scores. Further, participants who received CTI enhanced with peer support experienced fewer re-admissions at 30 and 60 days. Findings suggest that adding peer support to the CTI can maintain or improve health-related QOL and may reduce re-hospitalizations for older participants from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds with clinical depression.
