We all know that the US is in a mental health crisis. Fortunately, 988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. This will signify that mental health is as important as physical health, and is expected to greatly increase use of the hotline.

Individuals from marginalized communities are not only more likely to experience mental health issues due to social determinants and institutionalized racism, they are less likely to have access to treatment for their concerns. It’s clear that increasing access to mental health care is vital to promote everyone’s health and wellness.

Neurogeneticists are modern day astronauts, taking us into inner space instead of outer space to explore the undiscovered neurons and networks in our brains. They are utilizing advances in genome sequencing to better grasp the cause of brain and nerve disorders, both to improve treatment, and to reduce stigma around these conditions.

One of the good things that came out of the past few years has been a greater reckoning with and understanding about racism. The very systems embedded in American society treat people unequally based on their race. This affects how people of different races see themselves and interact with each other, which can impact a person’s mental health. 

 

While these ideas are becoming more widely understood, today’s guest, Dr. Janet Helms,...

Stigma around psychedelics appears to be fading in this country. Interest in evidence-based ways to enhance treatment is on the rise - including research into the potential found by adding psilocybin–otherwise known as magic mushrooms–as well as MDMA, Ketamine, LSD, and Ayahuasca, especially with the expansion of mental health needs brought on by the pandemic. Studies are showing exciting results about the possibility for psychedel...

In Wakefield, Kristen channeled her experience with mental illness into an art form to try to help reverse the stigma around mental health. Psychiatric hospitals are not typically portrayed in true fashion on TV, but are heavily stereotyped – which is part of the problem. Kristen is passionate about the concept of where is the line between mental health and living with untreated mental health symptoms, and exploring that in an ente...

There are at least 23 million people in long term recovery from substance use in the United States. Despite this, recovery is still a largely hidden and stigmatized issue. As Patrick Kennedy shares, “That kind of shame feeds the illness.” Kelsey Moreira, CEO of DOUGHP--a delicious brand of edible cookie dough--is in recovery from alcohol use disorder, and uses her platform to normalize recovery, both within her company and in the w...

The pandemic accelerated the demand for tele-mental health services. However, there is a shortage of clinicians. Those who do get help often have to settle for a provider with the wrong specialty, or no speciality at all. Fortunately, organizations like Centerstone--led by our guest David Guth--are working hard to make telehealth ubiquitous, and to match people with the right clinicians.

Our guest, Dr. Patrick Conway, has experienced this system, “as an individual, as a family member, and as a practicing physician,” as well as at the top ranks of insurance companies. He is not satisfied with how the system does—and often does not—work, and has spent his career focused on mental health care reform.

Suicide is the ultimate tragedy. The lack of mental health awareness and treatment access in this country plays a contributing role. It is seen as something that is out of our control, a decision people make, or as a surprise. We often see words like “unexpected” in obituaries. However, research has shown us that the solutions to this collective problem are well understood. And we must implement these solutions to prevent suicide.
