Conversations with Mental Health Experts and Brain Scientists
Brain Waves is an online channel where you can watch interviews with notable mental health experts and brain scientists, while also asking them your own questions about brain health research and activism (note disclaimer).
Each episode will be streamed live on our One Mind Facebook page.
Guest Host: Laurie Hernandez
Laurie Hernandez is an American artistic gymnast who competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics, winning gold in the team event and silver on the balance beam. Since posting on Instagram in April 2020 about the verbal and emotional abuse she received by a former coach and the mental health challenges it created, Laurie has continued to be a passionate and supportive advocate for mental health and for speaking up. Building on the stellar work Laurie did as a co-host for the 3-day Stronger Than You Think web-event that One Mind partnered on in 2020, we are proud to have Laurie’s support as a guest host for our One Mind Brain Waves program. Watch her recent hosting episode.
