With Humility I was invited to speak at the Dalai Lama’s Men Tsee Khang’s 8th Body Mind Life Conference

I am humbled to announce that I am traveling to India to speak at the Dalai Lama’s Body Mind Life Conference, Nurturing Children’s Mental Health.” 9/30/18 & 10/1/18 Dharmshala, India. 

Here is the description of my talk:

Children’s mental health is one of the most important topics to be discussing as ONE HUMANITY. Did you know that 50% of life long mental health issues start before age 14, and 75% before age 24?

Awareness and self- love set the stage for inner peace and healthy mindset. When individuals thrive WE all thrive.

Dr. Denise McDermott will discuss the importance of children’s mental health as a foundation of physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Dr. Denise will discuss the core elements of what she believes are essential for our children to evolve and thrive.

The Western Medicine approach of biological, psychological and social psychiatric assessment will be discussed. The importance of including input from family, teachers and other professionals to help children to achieve optimal mental health will be strongly emphasized. It truly takes a village to raise a healthy child.

Did you know that psychiatrist in greek means, “Dr. of the Soul?” Traditionally in Western Medicine psychiatric training an emphasis of material science is championed. Dr. Denise values this and wants to take the discussion one step further on how she approaches a discussion of soul while working with her patients.

Dr. Denise believes that a practice of meditation, healthy diet and regular fitness are key elements to include in a holistic health plan. Teaching our children to have compassion for themselves and others is paramount for integrated well-being.

With gratitude and humility Dr. Denise is honored to be a part of Men Tsee Khang’s 8thBody Mind Life conference along side scholars and healers in this crucial discussion of “Children’s Mental Health.”
