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 honored to host this zoom event featuring Robert Kolker, author of Hidden Valley Road, Dr. Stephen Marder, UCLA Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, and Lindsey Galvin Rauch, youngest sibling of the Galvin family. We hope that you found their conversation engaging, informative and inspiring.


As we all adapt to these challenging times that keep us physically apart, we are pleased that we are able to continue to remain socially connected with you through our virtual Open Mind programs that bring us together as a community. Now more than ever, it is important for us to learn more about about mental health issues that affect over 46.6 million people every year in this country alone (and that statistic was before the coronavirus pandemic)!


On that note, we are proud to announce that our next virtual Open Mind /#WOW program, "Parenting During the Pandemic", will be held on Friday, June 12 at 4PM. Lori Gottlieb, psychotherapist, "Dear Therapist" columnist for The Atlantic, and author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, will be joined in conversation by Daniel Siegel, M.D., psychiatrist, best-selling author of numerous books including Parenting From the Inside Out, The Whole Brain Child, The Developing Mind, and Co-founder and Director of The Mindsight Institute.
