Mind Matters

Share: 

AS A SOCIETY, it’s a topic we rarely discuss. When we do, too often we stigmatize, leaving many among us to struggle in silence. But mental and cognitive health are every bit as vital to our wellbeing as physical health.

At the Fielding School, we are working to bring public health solutions to problems that affect hundreds of millions of people around the world — promoting prevention strategies, ensuring access to appropriate care, and providing information and education in an effort to change the way these conditions are viewed.

Our state of mind affects our daily function, our work productivity, our relationships, our capacity to lead fulfilling lives — and in many cases, our ability to maintain sound physical health. When we struggle, so do those around us. That struggle should never be a cause for shame, or silence.
