Free E-book

"Everything You Need to Know About Getting Mental Health, Addiction or Trauma Treatment" by Shari B. Kaplan LCSW introduces an integrative approach to mental health and wellbeing.

Kaplan explains that mental health encompasses more than just thoughts and feelings. It involves a person's whole being - brain, body, social connections, emotions, environment, economics, and spirituality.

To improve mental health issues, addictions, trauma, or general wellbeing, Kaplan advocates for a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses all aspects of health. This holistic approach considers the physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of each individual.

Just as recipes and business plans provide guidance, Kaplan's book offers a manageable life plan to successfully manage mental health and find contentment. This plan provides a roadmap whether you're facing stressors, mental health disorders, addictions, trauma, or simply want more fulfillment.

The key, according to Kaplan, is taking an integrative approach to treatment and life that sees the whole person. With the right plan, you can thrive mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually.

We are offering Kaplan's E-book, free of charge; to be emailed a copy, please fill out the form provided.
