Past Cure X: Mental Health
Wednesday, May 24, 2023
Presented by Seema Kumar, CEO, Cure
Our Minds are Ailing – What Can be Done Now?
All indicators are rising—depression, anxiety, and more; we all need Mental Health Help Now!
At a moment when a billion minds are facing some form of mental illness and many more of us feel anxious, Cure CEO, Seema Kumar, engaged the audience in a frank and in depth discussion about mental health—the science and treatments; personal stories; musical acts and art; prospects for our future brains; and a group meditation to soothe and inspire.
Join us on May 24th with a mind wide open to discuss brain science, psychedelics and mindfulness.
