Friday, June 14, 2013
oldham-john-web-only-2-2012We're pleased to announce Mindscape, a podcast series of short videos designed to introduce viewers to leaders in mental health and topics that will promote conversation about mental health.
“We hope these brief video subjects will help you be more informed and more comfortable talking about mental health,” said the host of Mindscape, John M. Oldham, MD, MS. Dr. Oldham is Menninger's chief of staff and past president of the American Psychiatric Association.
Dr. Oldham, a globetrotting speaker and expert on personality disorders, is uniquely qualified to illuminate topics we all can put to use in our lives. In some editions of Mindscape he will interview select guests to introduce to you. In others he will highlight emerging research or provide insight into mental health angles related to current news events.
The first two videos are an introduction to the Mindscape podcast and Dr. Oldham's interview with Helen Mayberg, MD, professor of Psychiatry, Neurology and Radiology and the Dorothy C. Fuqua Chair of Psychiatric Neuroimaging and Therapeutics at Emory University.
Upcoming Mindscape videos will feature a look back at Menninger's founding family and how power may affect leaders' decision making.
