Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Kevin Love and former UCLA standout joined Michelle Craske, psychology and psychiatry professor and director of the Innovative Treatment Network within the Depression Grand Challenge (DGC), on August 19, 2019 for Minds Matter: Raising the Curtain on Depression and Anxiety: the first in an ongoing series called Minds Matter hosted by UCLA Psychology and the Geffen Playhouse about issues affecting the brain.
They spoke to a full crowd during the hour-long event and discussed anxiety and depression, public stigma, and the DGC. During their chat, Love shared that mental health isn’t just an athlete thing, but rather an issue that affects everyone in some way. “The more we can normalize the conversation around mental health, the more we can do to help those that are struggling,” said Love.
Minds Matter is part of a larger series hosted by UCLA Psychology and the Geffen Playhouse to step inside the minds of UCLA Psychology faculty and guest panelists as they raise the curtain on the amazing human brain. The Minds Matter series is generously supported by Loretta and Victor Kaufman.
