October is a time to bring awareness to Mental Health. Oct. 4-10 is Mental Illness Awareness Week. Oct. 8 is National Depression Screening Day, and World Mental Health Day is Oct. 10. There is an urgency to act now. Approximately 61.5 million Americans experience a mental illness in a given year. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 3,000 people on average commit suicide daily. Bringing awareness to Mental Health can literally save lives.
One Mind has released three :30 second Public Service Announcements (PSAs), as well as print PSAs, that encourage the public to join the effort to find answers for brain illness by donating to One Mind. Donations will fund open science, data sharing, and collaboration to find answers for brain illness. The three PSAs highlight the struggles of three different patient types: veteran, caregiver and athlete.
About One Mind
One Mind is dedicated to promoting and supporting brain health. There is an urgency to act now. By forming global partnerships within the governmental, corporate, scientific and philanthropic communities, we can accelerate large-scale research through “Open Science” data sharing and collaboration. One Mind not only to helps raise awareness and eliminate the stigma of brain disease, but also acts as a leader in the community by revolutionizing collaboration, research and funding.
One Mind programs greatly accelerate the discovery of better diagnostics, treatments and cures for brain illness. Our current focus is on a new approach to diagnose, treat and cure post-traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).The reasons are many, but here are a few: our service members returning from deployment, the rise in awareness of sports related brain injuries and new research that shows the interrelatedness of neurological illnesses. We believe that the data sharing principles, collaborative structures and technology solutions that we are developing in our PTS and TBI programs will also be useful to researchers studying related illnesses — including depression, Parkinson’s, ALS, dementia, Alzheimer’s and addiction.
