Mental Health Talk was established to create ongoing discussions around mental health with goal of decreasing myths and stigmas. We are committed to the wellness of individuals, their families, and the community through creating awareness around prevention, intervention, treatment, and education. Our goal is to encourage engagement with mental health professionals as a means of addressing untreated mental illness.

the most massive characters are seared with scars” - Khalil Gibran

Mental Health Talk magazine is a well-rounded publication that seeks to bridge  gaps between mental health and medical health. Its’ content allows readers an opportunity to understand the basis of issues surrounding mental health, medical health, and problems and solutions associated with unique populations (e.g., military, law enforcement, men, and children, etc.) that may warrant modified services when engaged in mental health services.

We have a multi-disciplined and diverse team of content writers that aid in creating, what readers are referring to as, a phenomenal project! Our mission at Mental Health Talk is to always promote awareness via many platforms with the goal of reducing stigmas and promoting engagement in services. It is my hope that the Mental Health Talk magazine helps to reduce existing ambiguities associated with mental illnesses. — Dr. Leslie Rogers
