In Wakefield, Kristen channeled her experience with mental illness into an art form to try to help reverse the stigma around mental health. Psychiatric hospitals are not typically portrayed in true fashion on TV, but are heavily stereotyped – which is part of the problem. Kristen is passionate about the concept of where is the line between mental health and living with untreated mental health symptoms, and exploring that in an entertaining and darkly comedic way. Kristen also took a big risk to bring Wakefield to the small screen. She realized to get the project financed, she would need to reveal the authenticity behind its creation, but she felt exposing her experience of being hospitalized could potentially ruin her career. However, Kristen felt that it was worth the risk to help fight mental health stigma and help others with mental health issues.   If you enjoy this podcast, be sure to follow or subscribe wherever you are listening, and share the show with your colleagues and friends.

There are at least 23 million people in long term recovery from substance use in the United States. Despite this, recovery is still a largely hidden and stigmatized issue. As Patrick Kennedy shares, “That kind of shame feeds the illness.” Kelsey Moreira, CEO of DOUGHP--a delicious brand of edible cookie dough--is in recovery from alcohol use disorder, and uses her platform to normalize recovery, both within her company and in the world at large.    "What we're trying to do at Doughp is to break the stigma around mental health and addiction recovery.” -Kelsey Moreira Kelsey is the founder & fearless leader of Doughp, a mission-driven edible & bakeable cookie dough business that ships their product into thousands of households every week.

The pandemic accelerated the demand for tele-mental health services. However, there is a shortage of clinicians. Those who do get help often have to settle for a provider with the wrong specialty, or no speciality at all. Fortunately, organizations like Centerstone--led by our guest David Guth--are working hard to make telehealth ubiquitous, and to match people with the right clinicians.    "When we talk about matching individuals with clinicians that are specifically competent in their area of presentation, we've got to do that in a tele-health environment. Because otherwise, what you're looking at is geographical proximity of the clinicians and the people seeking care. And it's gotten so specialized that you really need to be able to offer your compliment of specialists over a broader geography.” -David Guth   David Guth, is the chief executive officer and co-founder of Centerstone, one of the nation's largest behavioral health care providers. He has over 40 years of behavioral health care experience. He's an expert on the adoption of information technology in the healthcare industry, the integration of behavioral and primary health, and the importance of improving the field with research-driven practices and protocols.   Join Marjorie Morrison and Patrick J. Kennedy for an in-depth discussion with David Guth on the importance of telehealth, and the unique challenges it creates, as well as a wide-ranging conversation about the state of mental health in America today.   If you enjoy this podcast, be sure to follow or subscribe wherever you are listening, and share the show with your colleagues and friends.

We're taking a week off from releasing new episodes, so today we wanted to re-up one of our favorite episodes of the show, a conversation with Johnny C. Taylor Jr., CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).   With more than 300,000 members around the globe, SHRM promotes the role of HR as a profession and provides education, certification, and networking to its members, while lobbying Congress on issues pertinent to labor management.   In this episode, we discuss the idea that furthering diversity was at the center of the 20th century, while inclusion is the issue of the 21st century. According to Taylor, workforces underestimated just how complicated diversity is to manage. He shares his belief that empathy will bridge that gap between diversity and inclusion, and lead us towards a better future.     If you enjoy this podcast, be sure to follow or subscribe wherever you are listening, and share the show with your colleagues and friends.

This week, we revisit a conversation on issues facing our mental health care system as a whole. Our guest, Dr. Patrick Conway, has experienced this system, “as an individual, as a family member, and as a practicing physician,” as well as at the top ranks of insurance companies. He is not satisfied with how the system does—and often does not—work, and has spent his career focused on mental health care reform.    "Our system doesn’t get access to people when and how they need it. It doesn’t measure and improve outcomes as it should. It doesn’t integrate well with primary care and whole-person care… It affects everyone in America in some fashion. So how do we tolerate a system that is so dysfunctional?” -Dr. Patrick Conway   Patrick Conway, MD, MSc, is the CEO of Care Solutions at Optum, part of UnitedHealth Group, serving tens of millions of people across acute and post-acute care, care in the home in-person and virtually, mental and behavioral care benefits and delivery, broad population and complex disease health management, specialty care, and government health services. He previously served as President and CEO of Blue Cross North Carolina, Chief Medical Officer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Director of Hospital Medicine at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and as Chief Medical Officer for the Department of Health and Human Services.    Join Marjorie Morrison and Patrick J. Kennedy for an in-depth discussion with Dr. Conway on the importance of combining treatment of mental and behavioral health, the impact of the pandemic on the mental health space, what effect new bio-metric technologies will have on mental health, and how Dr. Conway’s own experience with substance use inspires his work.    If you enjoy this podcast, be sure to follow or subscribe wherever you are listening, and share the show with your colleagues and friends.

Suicide is the ultimate tragedy. The lack of mental health awareness and treatment access in this country plays a contributing role. It is seen as something that is out of our control, a decision people make, or as a surprise. We often see words like “unexpected” in obituaries. However, research has shown us that the solutions to this collective problem are well understood. And we must implement these solutions to prevent suicide.  “There is so much that we can do now based on the science, to know when the right time is to intervene, and also to use a public health approach, where even before we get to the point of intervention, all children, all people in the population are exposed to the same levels of education[al]  messages, [and a] safe and supportive culture.” -Christine Moutier, M.D. This week we are joined by Christine Moutier, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to talk about suicide among veterans and young people, and biological factors that put people at higher risk for suicide. We also explore the solutions to preventing suicide, including how we can be better at implementing them. Everyone has a role to play to stop suicide.    If you enjoy this podcast, be sure to follow or subscribe wherever you are listening, and share the show with your colleagues and friends.

If we really seek to reform mental health, we have to focus on where the rubber hits the road in communities. At the county level, this is where often disparate local, state, and federal budgets are integrated. When those budgets are merged, they can allow for the kind of innovation that our guest Dr. John Sherin has pioneered in LA county.   "Our government invests a tremendous amount of money in delivery of health and human services. And that money really needs to go into the communities and not into bureaucracy.” -Dr. Jon Sherin   Dr. John Sherin, Director of the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, oversees America’s largest public mental health department with an annual budget approaching $3 billion. Dr. Sherin is a longtime health advocate who has worked tirelessly throughout his career on behalf of vulnerable populations.    Join Marjorie Morrison and Patrick J. Kennedy for an in-depth discussion with Dr. Sherin on how new approaches implemented in Los Angeles can show a way forward for other counties, states, and the federal government.   If you enjoy this podcast, be sure to follow or subscribe wherever you are listening, and share the show with your colleagues and friends.

How do warriors cope after the enduring traumas of war? What can we learn from the military about mental health? In the second of three ‘Pillar Episodes’, Patrick J. Kennedy turns the tables on his co-host Marjorie Morrison, to ask her about her past life working with the U.S. Marines.      “There's a lot of progress that's been made, but it's a really broken system. So I sound like you [Patrick] when I say this, but it comes from mental health and physical health being separated really from the beginning.” -Marjorie Morrison   Marjorie’s focus on supporting members of the military and their communities was first developed in the field, after she spent a year writing and implementing a revolutionary proactive counseling program for the U.S. Marines. After working with 500 Marine drill instructors, her innovative program continued at Camp Pendleton, where she was able to work with  hundreds of Marines to interview and learn from. This implementation research was utilized to create a groundbreaking solution to approach military mental health care. She continued this work as Founder and CEO of PsychArmor Institute, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, committed to bridging the military-civilian divide through free education.   Listen today as Patrick J. Kennedy and Marjorie Morrison discuss ongoing challenges including how the military community is often isolated, the complexity of trauma-related symptoms, mismatched incentives among payors and providers, and important solutions for the future.   If you enjoy this podcast, be sure to follow or subscribe wherever you are listening, and share the show with your colleagues and friends.

Does recovery really work? Is COVID changing the future of mental health? What inspired Patrick to open up about the Kennedy family's experience with substance use?  In the first of three new 'Pillar Episodes,' we want to help you, our listener, get to know the remarkable people at the helm of Psych Hub and The Future Of Mental Health Podcast. In this episode, we get somewhat raw and vulnerable with our extraordinary hosts, Psych Hub's Marjorie Morrison, and Former Politician Patrick Kennedy.  "My family, like everyone else's, didn't want to talk about these issues. We kept them silent and secret, and we were largely in denial - and as a result, all of our illnesses never got treated properly. They got a lot worse…the fact that we've never had people being able to speak up for themselves within the medical system means the medical system really hasn't been responsive. And hence most of us get treated at the very end of a long pathology of these illnesses, and it's very hard to recover". Patrick Kennedy Psych Hub co-founders Marjorie Morrison and Patrick J. Kennedy have been fighting for a preventative approach to mental health throughout their careers. Morrison spent a year writing and implementing a revolutionary proactive counseling program for the U.S. Marines before founding PsychArmor, the nation's leading organization providing military mental health education. While serving as a  US Congressman, Patrick fought to end discrimination against mental illness, substance use , and other brain disorders. He is best known as the lead sponsor of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. The Federal Parity Law requires insurers to cover treatment for mental health and substance use disorders on par with  treatment for physical health illnesses like diabetes and cancer. Listen today as Patrick J. Kennedy and Marjorie Morrison talk about why Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is their favorite form of therapy for them personally, the broad changes that we need in the healthcare industry to improve the future of mental health, and so much more.
