The #Reframe Conference: Mental Health & The Media
Join us for a groundbreaking full-day summit with leaders flying in from across the country to share their stories of new frontiers and practical applications, living into new notions of what it means to be well.
Re-imagining what it means to “be well,” The Neurodiversity Project has assembled leading figures from the Sundance Institute, Harvard Neurology, On Being, and elsewhere in order to #reframe our conceptions of what we currently call "mental health" and "mental health care."
What new stories are we in dire need of? What does a Harvard neurologist focused on sensitivity have in common with a Sundance Institutue Director focused on virtual reality? In the corners of all our respective fields, there are innovators literally creating new definitions, maps, guidelines, and experiences that take us out of old boxes, categories and diagnostic checklists. Will the fields of medicine and psychiatry as we currently know them survive and how do journalists cover these emerging beats?
Join us for a groundbreaking full-day summit with leaders flying in from across the country to share their stories of new frontiers and practical applications, living into new notions of what it means to be well. Be inspired with leading media directors, researchers, activists, artists, and scientists. Find fellow innovators who are re-inventing intersections in their daily lives, sharing heartfelt personal stories, and why new visions and definitions are needed.
What have we lost in our basic fabric and how do we get it back? We will put the pieces back together, re-connecting the web of life supports that are needed to keep us all in joyful emotional health. Science, art, literature, activism, and celebration all have their part to play. Ready to walk into a doctor's office and meet with a storyteller for part of your treatment?
