Re: The article, Mental Health: Dismissive Attitude To Treatment Must Stop, in the Kelowna Capital News, June 4, by Michelle Fortin from Roundtable of Provincial Social Services Organizations.
BrainWave Optimization uses a patented neuro-feedback technique that has helped overworked adults, as well as teens, and everyday people overcome brain injury, memory loss, insomnia, and other issues affecting the brain.
The article states that a dismissive attitude to the treatment of mental health must stop. BrainWavebc.com has worked directly with youth and adults for over five years who are facing these types of debilitating issues, depression, suicide and drug addictions.
The June 4 article states:“The cost is enormous—A 2010 study estimated the cost to the economy due to lost work days related to this issue was $50 billion a year. Add the damage to families, the costs of homelessness and health care and the total rises sharply.”
This is a serious issue facing our communities—it is not something to be shunned, silenced or dismissed.
People often do not discuss these issues because there is no ‘solution’ for them—only a way to cope with their issues. BrainWave Kelowna offers state-of-the-art technology to help people overcome such issues. We should make sure that mental health and problem substance use services step out of the shadows.
BrainWave Kelowna was founded by family members after the tragic carbon monoxide poisoning of Kelowna resident Craig Harte. His remarkable recovery prompted his family to bring the BrainWave system to Kelowna.
Brain training is based upon the revolutionary discovery by Canadian psychiatrist Norman Doidge. He proved that even the adult brain is capable of rewiring itself—a process known as neuroplasticity, described as “one of the most extraordinary discoveries of the 20th century.”
Harte utilized a method that seems to activate neuroplasticity, apparently supporting the brain in healing itself.
Inspiring stories of personal triumph though brain training are available online at www.BrainWavebc.com.
Brain training supports individuals in overcoming many issues including, stress, depression, poor memory and poor attention.
