Sponsor/Panelist at Broward Mental Health Summitadmin
Healthier Confident You was a proud sponsor of the 2nd Annual Broward Mental Health Summit that was held on Thursday, September 12th.
The summit was for everyone wanting to learn about the mental health issues facing our communities in South Florida. The goal was for people of any walk of life to take away concrete data, informational tools, and a better understanding of the challenges affecting those with mental health issues.
Keynote Speakers included Frank Biden and Brett Francis. Summit breakout session topics included Suicide Prevention, Community Resources, LGBTQ Mental Health, Financial Stress, Addiction, PTSD and more. Our very own co-founder, Jessaca Clark, was a speaker on the PTSD panel.
The PTSD breakout session focused on talking about what PTSD is as well as various forms of proven treatment approaches. Jessaca gave a brief background on CBD along with some results/statistics from studies and relationships between CBD & PTSD.
PTSD is most common in veterans and first responders, however, anyone that has experienced major trauma can have PTSD. Witnessing or a first hand experience can lead this serious illness that many people in the world suffer from, drastically reducing the quality of life. Common symptoms include nightmares, difficulty functioning in society and being social, as well as an overall emotional imbalance.
CBD can help alleviate or eliminate symptoms when you replenish your body with the right amount of cannabinoids. By taking CBD, you activate your endocannabinoid system to work properly which can improve your quality of sleep, prevent memories from arising, and establish overall physical and mental well being, allowing people to regain hold of their lives.
It was an honor and a privilege to be selected for the PTSD panel and a sponsor for this amazing event.
