The Healthy Mind

Deepening our understanding of the cognitive and emotional pathways to health.

As neuroscience advances and mental health issues gain prominence, the Venn diagram of brain and mind is informing self-care, treatment, and public policy. By deepening our understanding of the cognitive and emotional pathways to health, we can rethink mindfulness, cultivate new opportunities to stave off dementia, depression, and anxiety, develop better coping strategies, and lift up the possibility of joy. The relative merits of drug treatment and talk therapy are generating vigorous discussion; the links between brain and gut suggest exciting treatment possibilities; and the therapeutic role of social networks, innovative apps, and community connections are all coming into sharper focus. Collaboration across many disciplines is the linchpin of a holistic approach to mental wellness around the world.
