Join fellow Women in Psychiatry for collegial connection and socialization, brunch, and a presentation by Dr. Robin Reesal, with a discussion about happiness, stress, and positive lifestyle changes. Dr. Reesal’s goal is to leave you each with more evidence-based choices for a quieter mind and healthier body.

From the World Health Organization's report on happiness, “Where are we happiest and what makes us happy?” to the role of negative and positive stress in our lives, Dr. Reesal empowers you to tackle simple lifestyle changes that have the potential to improve your health. Understanding the behavioral underpinnings of change allows you to achieve lasting healthy patterns. Together, we can develop new habits in how we socialize, how we treat ourselves, how we eat, how we care for our bodies, and how we build resilience.

Helen Keller described a lifestyle change for happiness. "Happiness calls out responsive gladness in others…Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness."

Dr. Reesal, an internationally experienced psychiatrist with a background in psychopharmacology, behavior therapy and mental health education. He is starting an evidence-based prevention and education focused telehealth practice for working professionals. This is an added service to standard healthcare.
