With the field of psychology growing each day, TED talks about mental health are becoming popular. I’ve been studying psychology for years so it’s a no-brainer why I love these talks. But I strongly believe that awareness is the way to change. TED talks about mental health are promoting the importance of being aware, changing your old perspective, and welcoming in a new one.
1. Thomas Insel
In his TED talk about mental health, Thomas Insel guides us towards a new understanding of mental illness. He addresses these brain diseases and how to reframe our perspective. He starts off talking about diseases like Leukemia and heart disease and the rate of mortality as a result. Early detection and early intervention are keys to changing the track of mental illnesses in our society. I find his speech amazing and inspiring.
