Well Beings Virtual Town Hall, July 14, 2020

Virtual Town Hall

We’ll be streaming LIVE right here on wellbeings.org! Tune in to hear from youth, filmmakers, student reporters, and some other powerful voices of lived experience, as well as celebrity ambassadors who support youth mental health and wellness.

We Are Well Beings

Every day, everywhere, everybody is touched by mental health challenges. With our partners, we stand united and strong at a critical time in the health and well being of our nation. Meet our Well Beings partners!

The Definition of Insanity

Follow a team of dedicated public servants working through the courts to steer people with mental illness — as their court cases hang in the balance — on a path from incarceration to recovery. The Definition of Insanity is now streaming on PBS.

Join us as we work to demystify and destigmatize health concerns through storytelling. Together with partners from across the country, including patients, families, caregivers, and professionals, we will address the critical health needs of Americans through the creation of broadcast content, original digital content, and impactful local events.
