The Connection of Neuroscience and Mental Health

All of us want to be healthy and helpful leaders for those in our care. Unfortunately, we are living in a world – and sometimes a brain -- that continues to knock on our doors, offering us loneliness, grief, fear, comparison thinking, and more. Things that can be counterproductive to our calling as leaders. For each of us, good mental health is vital. Fortunately, neuroscience can offer tremendous insight into our physical and psychological well-being.

In this webinar, psychiatrist Dr. Curt Thompson will shed light into what our brains are doing when they confront negative thoughts and feelings. He will also help us create patterns to overcoming mental obstacles that keep us from truly flourishing as joyful, healthy leaders.
