As the U.S. healthcare system moves forward generally into the realm of population health management and value-based delivery of care and purchasing, it might be useful to note that federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), which serve the poorest Americans, have been operating within an operating context that is community-oriented and value-based, for decades now.

This is a powerful article by +Phil Hoggart highlighting the main difficulties of the first two pillars of mental health treatment: psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. Focusing only on solving the problem and impacting symptoms leaves our clients vulnerable to the cycling impact of the actual organic wound.

What if rather than focusing on "normalizing" thoughts, behaviors, and moods we instead focused on supporting the mind in healing itself? Just as our bones have the capacity to mend when broken and cuts have the capacity to scar (both resulting in a stronger new foundation I might add) so too does our mind have the capacity to heal when wounded.

As clinicians we have the powerful ability to support real healing rather than engage in only symptom management. We can do this by including the Third pillar of treatment, psychosensory therapy, into our treatment tool belt. +Havening Techniques is one of the most powerful therapeutic tools I've had the pleasure to work with. When we change the goal from simply decreasing the symptoms and focus on actually healing the organic wound fast, efficient, and effective change becomes the reality.

When it comes to psychiatric treatments, it’s not just mood-altering drugs that can have side-effects

Interesting.... would like to see the actual research that supports this. Seems a bit of a stretch, but who knows there is a fine line between what is "magical" today and what is the result of sound science (pun intended). 
 
New Indiegogo campaign is looking to raise $60K to finalize development of a bio-acoustic mobile app KIJINI which is capable of supporting health and wellness.

The health data movement started with a call for open health data. In 2010, the Institute of Medicine and U.S. Department of Health & Human Services convened the Health Data Initiative to explore the potential of open government health data to fuel discovery by private sector entrepreneurs to improve health care. What started as a gathering of 45 people in 2010 has now grown to be Health Datapalooza, an annual event hosted by Health Data Consortium with more than 2,000 participants. This year’s gathering—which I encourage you to attend—will take place in Washington, DC from May 31 to June 3.

moving things along!
Zoom+ lobbyist Len Bergstein and Rep. Knute Buehler said SB 144 would revolutionize healthcare, offering a lower-cost, easy option for patients to receive guidance from doctors and other providers from the comfort and convenience of their homes or workplaces through two-way video conferencing.

The average American consumes 300+ gallons of California water each week by eating food that was produced here. Pray for rain.

I know a few people who frequently "forget" to eat, and the consequences are just terrible. Bodies need fuel. 
 
Skipping a meal here and there may not seem like a big deal, but it can get you into trouble if it becomes a habit.
