Description

Virtual Forum: Exploring Nonpharmacological Anti-Inflammatory Strategies In Mental Health: Connecting Science To Clinical Practice (Inflammation Part 2)

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description: In the upcoming second part of the inflammation series, Rakesh Jain, MD, MPH along with moderator and discussant, Rachel Self, MS, PhD, will discuss nonpharmacologic anti-inflammatory strategies to build on the science discussed during Part 1 of the series and provide practical interventions that can be instituted in the clinic setting. The virtual forum’s focus will be on interventions such as exercise, mindfulness, sleep hygiene, social connectedness, and optimized nutrition that suggest anti-inflammatory effects and improve mood and overall wellbeing.

In Part 1 of the inflammation series, Dr. McIntyre discussed the concept of inflammation metastasizing to the brain and how physical markers for inflammation play a role in mental health disorders. He discussed the immune and metabolic mechanisms associated with cognitive and mood disorders, which was presented in the context of disease modelling, as well as novel approaches.
