To create a comprehensive Mindfulness-Based Mental Health Center to develop, implement, and research community based mind/body interventions. The center is dedicated to helping those in need of affordable services, using a variety of treatment levels which address stress reduction, emotional regulation, and pain management through the integrated use of mindfulness-based therapy, mind/body classes, outreach and psychological education, training and technology.
At OMBI,a nonprofit dedicated to bringing mental health education to schools and communities, we include both the mind and the body — combine cognitive and body-based work — in the process.
Traditional therapy is cognitive, a top-down approach. What we know is mental and emotional health are both bottom up and top down — your brain influences your body, but your body also influences your brain. As a result, current mental health interventions are beginning to incorporate mind and body concepts.
Our clientele is broad-based, as evidence-based mind/body training continues to find a foothold in institutional functioning and learning. At OMBI, we provide training, professional development, and other services to individuals, the community, and organizations/institutions. Our clients include:
- School Students and Teenagers
- School Administrators, Teachers, and Counselors
