About One Mind All Media
Through One Mind’s 26+ year history, we have been committed to accelerating brain science and improving cultural perceptions about mental health, bending society toward hope and compassion while empowering each person around the world struggling with mental health challenges. In service to these goals, it is more important now than ever to educate and inspire global audiences through a wide range of mediums, both traditional and digital.
One Mind laid the rails for its media enterprise by securing a record fifteen funders to back a 2022 Ken Burns film on the crisis in mental health care and the challenges of stigma for young people. One Mind All Media now leads the production of the weekly Brain Waves webcast that features timely conversations with notable mental health experts and brain scientists, combined with personal perspectives from advocates and those with lived experience. Recent guests include Jewel, Lindsey Vonn, Patrick J. Kennedy, Temple Grandin, and Mariel Hemingway.
One Mind All Media is headed by Managing Director and Chief Content Officer, Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dalton Delan, who spearheaded for two decades the films of Ken Burns, films and series by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and television’s longest-running public affairs program Washington Week. Delan also co-created the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, in addition to twenty years of work with The Kennedy Center Prize for American Humor and overseeing In Performance at the White House for five Presidential Administrations.

From Breakdown to Breakthrough
One Mind is proud to support McCarter Theatre Center’s The Manic Monologues, a virtual theatrical experience that takes viewers on an interactive journey through the personal and true stories of individuals whose lives have been affected by mental health challenges. The experience is built around 21 individual stories performed by professional actors, and enhanced by digital design and technology.
The Manic Monologues was originally created and inspired by the experience of Zack Burton, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder while finishing his Ph.D. The result was a series of true personal accounts submitted by a diverse range of individuals, and curated into a live stage play first performed at Stanford University in 2019.
The McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, NJ planned to present a professional staged reading of the play in 2020. In the wake of COVID-19, the project was reconceived for virtual consumption as a free interactive website where visitors can choose their own journey, watch stories at their own pace, and express themselves through creative tools like a virtual Etch-A-Sketch.
