In "Mind-Body Approaches to Mental Health and Wellness," Burnett-Zeigler will discuss an approach which can potentially offer a more accessible and acceptable way of treating common symptoms of mental illness such as depression and anxiety. This approach explores creative uses of meditation and mindfulness techniques as a holistic response to mental health needs.  Burnett-Zeigler will discuss current barriers to treatment which include cost and availability of services as well as the stigmatization and stereotypes related to mental health issues.
