MABS President Jessica Eure, LPC, BCN, informed us at the MABS Board meeting on 8/11/19 that she shared a Functional Mental Health Checklist she has developed with the Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia (ANSA). In exchange, ANSA made a small donation to MABS. ANSA, a new NF society, plans to include the checklist in the packets for their first conference this fall. Australasis includes 14 countries, of which Australia and New Zealand are the largest.
In my opinion, this is a very exciting development for the field of BF and NF, as well as for health care in many more countries. MABS is helping to make BF/NF known more globally.
