Each Mind Matters
Seven professionals whose work touches older adults discuss mental health issues for that population. Twenty-five percent of older adults in the United States have a diagnosable mental illness, as well as millions of others of all age groups. In response to the challenges of mental illness, “Each Mind Matters” is a movement of individuals and organizations dedicated to a shared vision of mental health wellness and equality. The organization’s motto is “We believe in healing through action, strength through diversity, and power through collaboration.” The panelists talk about ways to address and reduce stigmas about mental health, and provide information about their agencies’ programs.
