Connecting Mental and Physical Health Life Effects

    • Science

In this episode, we investigate the deep connections between mental health and physical health. For years, a large faction of the medical community neglected this link, and patients who suffered mental distress had to do it alone. Why have taboos around mental health persisted? And what does the future look like as we probe the innate relationship between mental and physical health?
To answer these questions, host Sara Ivry is joined by Heather Von St. James, a cancer survivor and patient advocate, and Dr. Neha Chaudhary who co-founded Brainstorm: The Stanford Laboratory for Brain Health Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
