Abstract: 

'Healthy Brain, Healthy Mind' (HBHM) is a five session educational course for patients and other older adults (ie, caregivers) that nonstigmattically addresses mental health. Now also translated into Spanish, HBHM  teaches participants twelve pathways to a healthy brain and mind (including healthy diet, sleep practices, remaining active, social engagement, self-advocacy, menaging emotions, continued learning, positive self-talk, gratitude, resilience, connecting with nature, and service to others) while discussing stress management and goal setting. Training materials include a facilitator's guide and participant workbook. This curriculum can also be used as a model for healthcare provider communication with older adults.

Educational objectives: 

After completion of this program, participants will be better able to understand stress management.

After completion of this this program, participants will understand the working relationship with physiological and mental health.
