'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.
