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 Brett Rapkin with Sasha Cohen and Talin Babikian, Ph.D. We hope that you found their conversation enlightening.

Our next virtual Open Mind/#WOW program, The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health will be Wednesday, December 9, 2020. Rheeda Walker, Ph.D. explores Black mental health in today's world, the forces that have undermined mental health progress for African Americans, and what needs to happen for African Americans to heal psychological distress, find community, and undo years of stigma and marginalization in order to access effective mental health care. 

Gail Wyatt, Ph.D., Professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA, will join Dr. Walker in conversation. 

You can register for this event here.
