This May 20th is the first-ever #MentalHealthAction Day, and Wholistic Wellbeing company RoundGlass, in partnership with MTV, is hosting a mental health livestream round table with leading personalities in the field, including Vikram Patel, Global Health Professor at Harvard, and Sian Beilock, President of Barnard College at Columbia University. The live event will start at 10am PT / 1 pm ET and can be watched at MTV's #MentalHealthAction Day Roundtable.
RoundGlass, a global “Wholistic Wellbeing” company, aims to revolutionize people’s wellbeing through a combination of technology, expert-driven content, and immersive experiences. And through this livestream, the company hopes to “encourage and empower people to take the next step.” Something that is more needed than ever.
The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered what mental health experts call a second pandemic. Mental health crisis has soared in the last year and though more people than ever are comfortable discussing mental health, finding effective resources and knowing how to get help remains a challenge. That is what RoundGlass, MTV and this livestream is willing to tackle.
The “Mental Health Strategies for Optimal Wellbeing” livestream round table will take place on May, 20. It will be divided into two sessions: one starting at 10am PT / 1pm ET following up by a second session at 11am PT / 2pm ET.
The round table will be included within the different events planned for the first ever Mental Health Action Day, an open-source movement of more than 1000 brands, organizations, and cultural leaders to drive culture from mental health awareness to mental health action.
