The Open Mind is a community film and lecture series that brings together thought leaders in science and culture to present programs about mental health issues as a free public service to the community.  Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, these programs were held in-person at UCLA but are now presented on a virtual zoom platform,  attracting a national and international audience.  We are honored that the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Board of Advisors and #WOW the Wonder of Women has joined The Friends of Semel in support of the Open Mind.   

Some of our past presenters include:
