One Mind All Media
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.
Substantially increase funding for brain health research
Produce media that will help to significantly advance workplace mental health best practices and access
Transform society, eliminate discrimination, and celebrate neurodiversity
Addressing the mental health impact of racial trauma
The worldwide pandemic and efflorescence of the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd created a perfect storm to expand the focus of One Mind All Media to not only the at-risk youth targeted by the Burns documentary, but the inequitable access and affordability issues for mental health care for young persons of color. One Mind has long been a leader in research on post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury, but now is broadening its focus to content that speaks to the stresses and traumas inherent in the experiences of persons of color, as well as sexual and other violence.
To address these urgent circumstances, One Mind All Media launched the digital-first content initiative One Mind Share, which has reached young, diverse audiences on their favored social and streaming platforms, leveraging short-form video storytelling optimized for mobile and web to transform awareness of best practices and available services for mental health, particularly among young persons of color, as well as youth in general.
“Hiding in Plain Sight: Our Mental Health Crisis”
A PBS documentary from Ken Burns
In partnership with Ewers Brothers Productions and executive producer Ken Burns, One Mind is proud to support a new PBS documentary that will focus on the mental health crisis faced by young people in the United States. Slated for release in 2022, the four-hour film is part of the larger public media campaign, the Well Beings Youth Mental Health Project.
Brain Waves Series
Brain Waves is a weekly interview series with leaders in brain health science and advocacy. Every Friday, we welcome guests from all facets of the brain health community, including researchers, advocates, and individuals with lived experience, in order to explore the current challenges, resources, and innovations in the field. Since its inception ten years ago, Brain Waves has been hosted by One Mind president Brandon Staglin. Special episodes are guest hosted by Olympic gymnast, Laurie Hernandez and multi-platinum artist, Hunter Hayes, both of whom are outspoken mental health advocates.
New episodes stream live on our Facebook page every Friday at 12 PM PT.
Stronger Than You Think
Stronger Than You Think was an unprecedented three-day livestream during Mental Health Awareness Month 2020 that featured over 60 A-list celebrities and athletes, leading brain health experts, and powerful youth raising their voices to speak out about mental health in the midst of the global pandemic. The event was marked by powerful stories and performances from celebrities and musicians who shared their personal mental health journeys.
This event was sponsored by One Mind and the Crisis Text Line with The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) as a charitable partner.
