Tune in this Friday, June 25th at Noon!
Humor, positive thinking, gratitude, a sunny disposition - these all contribute to improving wellbeing. To explore the benefits of positivity, please join us Friday, June 25th at Noon PT (3pm ET) for our next episode of Brain Waves. Olympic gymnast, Laurie Hernandez, will host an informative episode titled “Mental Health Benefits of Levity” with Dr. Stephen Schueller, Associate Professor of Psychological Science at UC Irvine and Executive Director of One Mind PsyberGuide, and Michele Farhat, Director of Development, Aldea Children & Family Services and Armchair Comedian.
One Mind President and original Brain Waves host, Brandon Staglin, M.S. launched the livestream series in 2011 to amplify the voices of the advocates and neuropsychiatric researchers shaping the future of brain health. Brandon\u2019s deep experience in communications, advocacy, and personal schizophrenia recovery inform his work to heal lives through One Mind.<\/p>\n
The American College of Neuropsychopharmacology designated Brandon as the winner of their 2020 Media Award, which was established to recognize major contributions to the education of the public about mental illness and substance abuse research and the positive impact of research on treatment. Among the many contributions Brandon has made, the award most notably recognizes his amazing work on Brain Waves.<\/p>\n

Of his mental health advocacy, Hayes says, \u201cMy life has been changed by fans sharing not only their connection with the music, but also their story. They\u2019ve opened up about their lives in such an inspiring way. I want my voice and our community to be a safe place where these conversations have the potential to show them they are not alone, and that they deserve to understand, embrace, and love themselves exactly as they are.\u201d<\/p>\n"}
