Living with Purpose: A Guide for Getting More Out of Each Day Provider Brochure
Name: Living with Purpose: A Guide for Getting More Out of Each Day Provider Brochure
Description: This patient workbook is designed to complement formal treatment for depression. The workbook employs a Behavioral Activation approach to get Veterans more active and more involved in pleasurable activities. Natalie Hundt, PhD; Maria Armento, PhD; Jeff Cully, PhD; Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center, Houston, TX. This Resource Guide was created by a national workgroup composed of representatives of the ten Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Centers (MIRECCs), at the request of and in collaboration with the Office of Mental Health Services, VA Central Office. Experts among the MIRECCs (see appendix) and VA Central Office identified resources that they and others recommend to their own clients. Multiple nominations were selected for inclusion in this guide, as the type of resource or approach that a veteran or family member finds helpful is likely to vary. This resource guide is not intended to be exhaustive, and as noted above, is not an endorsement of any commercial product. The guide is designed to provide information on many established resources available for a variety of mental health conditions.
