Mental Health & Behavioral Interventions
Holistic Approaches on Mental Health
Because a host of factors contribute to mental disorders, a holistic approach is needed to address the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of the person.
Johns Hopkins nurse clinicians, educators, students, and researchers work to address the continuum of mental health, from prevention to intervention, treatment, and recovery supports for individuals, groups, and populations. The goal for all is preventing mental and substance use disorders, removing barriers for those who need treatment, and promoting the health, well-being, and quality of life for all we touch.
