Through the interactions we have had with some of the most skilled neuropsychiatric brain scientists as well as through the events we have hosted such as our Music Festival for Brain Health and our Brain Waves interviews, we have built a vast brain health video library. Below are a few hand-picked videos sourced from our One Mind YouTube channel.
Schizophrenia is a serious brain disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. Most seriously, the person experiences hallucinations, delusions and thought and movement disorders that result in the person being out of touch with reality and having a lack of interest in the outside world. With support from One Mind and our partners, researchers are pioneering innovative treatments to help schizophrenia patients.

Post-Traumatic Stress is persistent mental and emotional stress occurring as a result of injury or severe psychological shock, typically involving disturbance of sleep and constant vivid recall of the experience, with dulled responses to others and to the outside world. 70% of adults in the U.S. have experienced some type of traumatic event at least once in their lives, with close to 20% of these people going on to develop PTS. Almost 50% of all outpatient mental health patients have PTS.

Depression is an umbrella term that includes disorders such as major depression, seasonal affective disorder, and persistent depressive disorder. 6.7 percent of all adults in the U.S. have experienced a major depressive episode in the past year. Depression can manifest in anyone and can cause sufferers to often feel run down, hopeless, and alone. With One Mind’s support, unprecedented strategies are being implemented to help major depression patients.

ANXIETY & STRESS
In the U.S., anxiety disorders affect nearly 18% of adults and 25% of children age 13 to 18. Anxiety disorders form a category of brain health diagnoses that lead to excessive nervousness, fear, apprehension, and worry that doesn’t go away and for some can get worse with time. Symptoms often include feeling restless, wound-up or on-edge, being easily fatigued, having concentration challenges, being irritable, and having problems with sleep.

Bipolar Disorder is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Without proper treatment, people with bipolar disorder may develop severe mania or depression. Our Rising Star Awards grant program is helping accelerate cutting-edge research to help bipolar disorder patients.

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Each year approximately 2.5 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury, either as an isolated injury or along with other injuries. Within this, approximately 282,000 people are hospitalized and 56,000 deaths occur due to TBI’s. In total, more than 5.3 million Americans live with the disabilities caused by TBI. The World Health Organization projects that by 2020, TBI will become the leading cause of neurological disability across all age groups.
