The United States is experiencing a devastating mental illness epidemic. A shocking 46% of the population experiences a mental illness at some point. That is about 149,822,000 people. One person commits suicide every 13 minutes, and depression is now the number one cause of disability worldwide. The number of Americans disabled by mental illness doubled between 1987 and 2007, and the problem is getting worse.

Mental is an intervention in this crisis. We are creating a multi-media media platform that brings scientific innovations in mental health treatment to a mass audience in an accessible way. Mental is in information service here to empower patients with information that is usually only available in dense scientific literature. Without access to current information, patients often think they are out of options for treatment. We want to give them hope.

Scientific breakthroughs in healthcare take a horrifying average of 17 years to make it into medical practice, leaving patients to cope with outdated therapies. We believe that patients do not have 17 years to wait. We will empower patients and clinicians to educate themselves about the most effective strategies for improved mental health and holistic well-being, including:

● Meditation
● Nutritional therapy
● Exercise
● Managing technology/ social media
● Nature therapy
● Establishing nurturing relationships/ developing supportive communities
● Noninvasive treatments such as transcranial stimulation and EMDR
● Emerging lower risk pharmaceuticals

Mental is a multi-media project that will be supported by a podcast series, educational documentaries, and will utilize all social media platforms, and books consisting of interviews with top doctors and research scientists about cutting-edge mental health treatments. We are building an invaluable health resource that will develop popular content that can save lives.

Mental is directed and produced by Emmy Award-winning film and television director Jesse Zook Mann, who became disabled due to the harsh side effects from an anti-anxiety medication. While searching for an effective intervention in his own health, he discovered a world of scientific advances from medical studies initially unfamiliar to his doctors. After years of dedicated research, he finally found life-saving treatments—now he’s ready to share this crucial information with others.
