Keeping the Body In Mind

 

Keeping the Body In Mind (KBIM) is a District wide program of SESLHD Mental Health for consumers of the Service developed to prevent and address cardiometabolic health issues. There are teams based at Bondi, Maroubra, St George and Sutherland. Each team consists of a nurse, exercise physiologist, dietitian and peer support worker.

We work with consumers of the Service to develop health goals and work towards supporting lifestyle changes that are achievable, measurable and sustainable.

A high priority for KBIM is to see young people between the age 15-25 years who have experienced first episode psychosis and are prescribed antipsychotic medications. KBIM uses an evidence based model of care providing a 12-week individualised program to support changes to diet, exercise, smoking, sleep and stress and equip consumers with skills to sustain changes.

KBIM program is also offered to consumers prescribed clozapine or long acting antipsychotic medication. Consumers can participate in a 12-week structured group program to address physical health issues especially those related to cardio metabolic risk.
