Needs Assessment
A lifestyle medicine evidence review was conducted by the American College of Preventive Medicine in 2009. It compiled the scientific evidence that supports the need for increased competence in lifestyle medicine among healthcare providers and predicted an increased demand for training in delivering lifestyle interventions. It argued that greater provider competence might lead to improved patient outcomes.

Currently, lifestyle medicine focused practices usually align with primary care practices in conducting basic depression screening, treat mild cases, and refer severe cases. A lifestyle medicine practice which aims to facilitate health behavior change, needs to screen for a spectrum of stress and mood disorders, as well as offer positive psychology interventions.

Although USPSTF only has a recommendation for depression screening and counseling, a lifestyle medicine practice which aims to facilitate health behavior change, needs to screen for a spectrum of stress and mood disorders, as well as offer positive psychology interventions. Mental health and emotional well-being are essential to support/promote efforts for health behavior change. Moreover, emotional well-being habits, such as social connectedness and living with purpose/meaning independently impact health outcomes and longevity.
