The New York State Office of Mental Health’s Office of Prevention and Health Initiatives is pleased to announce opportunities for New Yorkers to participate in Breath-Body-Mind TM practice and training sessions. Breath-Body-Mind™ (BBM) teaches gentle evidence-based, trauma-sensitive practices that provide rapid stress relief and, with practice over time, that also improve stress resilience. The following opportunities are available to all New Yorkers for free through the NYS Trauma-Informed Network and Resource Center.
- BBM Practice Sessions – Open practice sessions that are facilitated by a BBM teacher. Available at 6am, 12noon and 8pm every Tuesday.
- BBM Information Session – Open to organizational leaders and administrators to provide information about the BBM offerings available to frontline workers.
- BBM Fundamentals Course – This course teaches evidence-based, breath-centered mind-body techniques that have been shown to relieve stress and improve mood, mental focus, and performance. It is a pre-requisite for the BBM Teacher Training. A Course will be held in August and September.
- Breathe-Body-Mind Foundation Level-1 Breath-Body-Mind Teacher Training – Participants learn how to teach the core BBM techniques to promote wellness and to assist individuals with stress-related medical conditions, anxiety disorders, depression, ADHD, and PTSD.
