Holistic Mental Health Day
This interdisciplinary Mental Health Workshop will incorporate diverse viewpoints about mental health by focusing on trauma-informed care, harm reduction, and alternatives to the medical model of mental health. Speakers from both Penn and the greater Philadelphia community will present about trauma-informed care and harm reduction approaches that are often overlooked in healthcare education. Experts from CHOP, Project Home, Prevention Point, Philly Rebellious Nurses, and others will engage with an audience of nursing, dental, medical, social work, public health, and education students alongside community members of Philadelphia about incorporating holistic care. The Icarus Project will also speak about providing de-medicalized mental health care and the anti-psychiatry movement.
