MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS
We often see a distinction often made between 'mind' and 'body'. Though, the two should NOT be thought as separate when taking in consideration both mental health and physical health.
WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS THAT CAN AFFECT US?
The term mental health refers to a variety of conditions and disorders which impact our mood, the way we think and our behavior. These conditions can affect our day to day lives as well as impacting our ability to relate to others.
- 1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mentaL illness each year.
- 1 in 20 U.S. adults experience serious mental illness each year.
- 1 in 6 U.S. youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health disorder each year.
- 50% of all lifetime mental illness begins by age 14, and 75% by age 24.
Can just one event cause a mental health condition?
Mental health conditions develop due to many different influences and life events. Those conditions are outlined below:
- PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Social Isolation and Loneliness
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia
- ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
- BPD Borderline Personality Disorder
- Eating Disorders
- OCD or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders
- Schizoaffective Disorder
Maintaining our mental health and well-being is essential through every stage of our life. And depending on the severity of the conditions above, professional medical assistance may be required. I want to stress that mental health is a priority of House of Attilius to help combat, but only from a preventative side. Exploring disciplines that can help act as a possible preventative or therapy to help restore or strengthen our cognition, our behavior and our emotional well-being.

THE ARTS OF THE HOUSE
What is QII-TAU?
Qii-Tau (Pronounced Chee-TAO Qi = energy and TAU = the Greek spelling for Life) is discipline, competence and perfect health of the body, mind, and spirit.
A pure form in which a practitioner can experience long lasting benefits which are born from ancient traditions and rules of the natural arts.
QII-TAU emphasizes a focus on natural, integrated movement, whole body breathing, as well as the movement of Qi. The goal is to guide the practitioner to actualize the instinctive, hair trigger reactions of the human body in direct, powerful movements.
QII-TAU also adds in stillness in various forms to help the practitioner develop an internal awareness of one’s self and a calming effect on the internal body. This leads to helping the physical body reconnect with the mind, which in today’s stressful lifestyles most people have lost.

How is QII-TAU Structured?
QII-TAU is structured based on your needs and what your end goal is for yourself. This includes the length of the program and what disciplines will be apart of your healing and growth.
In keeping with our House design, your program will build you from the ground up: Foundation, Walls, Roof. Before progressing onto each phase, the previous phase must be solid in your practice, understanding and implementation. If any of the phases are not strong and sturdy, no matter how well you excel at the other phases your House will essentially be weak and begin to crumble.
