The Mind Itself is a podcast about mental health, mental health law, and how they affect all aspects of our daily lives. The title is an homage to Clifford Beers and his 1908 text, The Mind that Found Itself. Pioneers like Beers, Dorothea Dix, and even the ancient Greek Hippocrates helped forge new paths for how society views and treats mental health issues. This podcast seeks to further their works by bringing both local and national experts' opinions and expertise to bear on everything about the mind itself. By taking a deeper dive into how our society deals with mental health medically, legally, and practically, listeners can gain insight and information about one of America's most pressing and often overlooked issues that affect almost half of all adults in the United States.
