Dear Friends,

Thank you for participating in UCLA's Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Board of Advisors virtual Open Mind/#WOW program. We were pleased to host this zoom event featuring Beverlye Hyman Fead, author of Aging in High Heels, and Karen J. Miller, Ph.D., Director of the Memory Care Program at UCLA's Longevity Center. We hope you found the program meaningful and inspiring. If your friends, family or colleagues were not able to join us yesterday, they can view the program on our YouTube channel.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, February 17 at 5PM PT for our next Open Mind/#WOW program, Orchestrating Change. This inspiring documentary film tells the story of the Me2/Orchestra, the only orchestra in the world created by and for people living with mental illness and those who support them. The Me2/Orchestra creates a stigma-free environment of compassion and acceptance and performs exhilarating, beautiful music for mainstream audiences. 

You can register for this event here.

We invite you to visit our website, www.friendsofthesemelinstitute.org to see a calendar of upcoming Open Mind/#WOW programs and our library of videos from past presentations. There you will also find information about The Friends Research Scholar Program that awards grants to early career neuroscientists who are at the forefront of new discoveries about the mind and brain and our newly launched Open Mind Student Film Festival for Mental Health, now open to all high school students in the country. The Resnick Board supports early career clinicians through the Clinical Innovation Grants program.

We deeply appreciate the support of our audience members who make it possible for us to continue to bring renowned speakers and films about mental health issues as a free public service to the community. If you are able, we hope you will support us as generously as you can. Your contribution will be 100% tax deductible.
