Dear Friends,

Thank you for participating in last night's Open Mind program, BEDLAM, with Dr. Kenneth Rosenberg, Judge Songhai Armstead, George Gascon, Felicia Jones, The Honorable Patrick Kennedy, and Jonathan Sherin, M.D., Ph.D. We hope you found the program informative and eye-opening.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, January 26 at our next Open Mind program, Tomboy: The Surprising History And Future of Girls Who Dare To Be Different. Lisa Selin Davis recounts the history, science and psychology of girls who defied gender expectations—and looks at the possibilities for their future. Yalda T. Uhis, Ph.D., will join Ms. Davis in conversation.

You can register for this event here.

We invite you to visit our website,www.friendsofthesemelinstitute.org to learn more about The Friends and Resnick Open Mind/#WOW programs and see a calendar of upcoming events. 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. The Resnick Board also 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.
