Green Psychiatry is a patient-centered model that integrates conventional pharmaceutical treatments with exercise and nutrition, mind-body medicine, social spiritual or religious support systems, and judicious use of evidence-based natural products. Green Psychiatry recognizes the benefit of acupuncture, massage, yoga, and meditation in a broad range of mental health concerns and focuses not only on the eradication of illness, but the promotion of long-term and sustainable wellness.
