#YAPLive: Mental Health Masterclass with Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. Robin Smith, Amy Morin and Jonas Koffler (Cut Version)

Mental health is a topic that has been taboo for decades. The stigma and shame around mental health mean many people don’t get the help and support they need and end up suffering and struggling in silence.  There has been a reported increase in panic disorders, anxiety, stress, and more, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mental health is the pandemic that isn’t being talked about. We can no longer afford to stigmatize mental health or ignore this crisis. It is time the conversation about mental health comes to the forefront.  In this episode, Hala is joined by mental health leaders Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. Robin Smith, Dr. Owen Muir, Amy Morin, Jonas Koffler, and more, to talk about the state of mental health in the world, why normalizing mental health struggles is important, grieving and the process of healing, the potential of psychedelics in the future of psychiatry, and what daily habits we can start to today to improve our mental discipline and ultimately lead happier, healthier lives.
