The Link Between Mental Health Disorder and Genius with Dr. Gail Saltz • X99 Mind Love ♡ Modern Mindfulness

    • Mental Health

We will learn:


What a brain difference is, and what traits are associated with it. 
How to shift your focus from your diagnosis to your potential. 
How we can foster the qualities of geniuses and high achievers in our own lives. 

Did you know there is an association between creativity and major mental disorders? And did you know this has been known for hundreds of years?

The ancient Greeks thought of both as "having been touched by the gods.” And Aristotle said, “There is no genius without having a touch of madness.”

So what does the science say? How can we transform the source of our struggles to be the origin of our greatest strengths?

That’s what we’re talking about today.

Our guest is Dr. Gail Saltz. She is a bestselling author of numerous books, serves as a Medical Expert for the Physicians for Human Rights, and is the host of the podcast “How Can I Help?”. Dr. Saltz is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the NY Presbyterian Hospital Weill-Cornell School of medicine, a psychoanalyst with the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, and has a private practice in Manhattan.
