BANGOR - Does shopping have anything to do with your mental health? What about multitasking? Acadia Nurse Manager Eric McKeown believes it does, and is speaking at a presentation on May 23 to discuss this and other aspects of mental and emotional health. The Open Mind community education presentation will be held at Acadia Hospital as part of national mental health month. The event is free and open to the public. 

'It's a passion of mine, focusing and looking at how health and wellness intertwine,' McKeown said. One of those aspects is financial health. 

'One of the things we are going to be looking at is emotional shopping,' McKeown said, 'which is shopping to soothe emotional needs. We'll be looking at some of the consequences and stress that can come with that.' McKeown says that physical health will also be discussed.
