Your Healthy Brain is a presentation of The Healthy Brain ProgramĀ© which was an innovative approach to addressing brain care and the need for a long and healthy life, first presented to mental health professionals and then to the public, starting in 2000.

The concepts were presented at many psychiatric conferences both in Canada and the USA, in a 10-lecture interactive workshop format to colleagues and to the public. They have gained popularity and some Community Mental Health Teams have adopted The Healthy Brain ProgramĀ© as a platform for delivering brain care. After about 350 presentations, many colleagues and participants urged the publication of a book format. The first edition appeared in 2008.

This book, Your Healthy Brain, is organized along the same lines as the lecture series, following the same
headings, in two parts.

The Eight Pillars of Brain Health and Longevity:

1. Safety
2. Nutrition
3. Physical Fitness
4. Mental Activity
5. Sleep
6. Stress Management
7. Hormones
8. Treatment Disease (risk factors for dementia).
