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.
