‘DNA’ podcast goes live: July 20 Twitter Spaces chat about mental health, teens

Jul. 15, 2022, 3:05 PM

The third season of the “Vanderbilt Health DNA: Discoveries in Action” podcast series will kick off with a live Twitter Spaces chat about mental health that features several Club members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee.

Club members will join Vanderbilt University Medical Center physicians, researchers and staff to talk about the ways mental health impacts individuals, families and communities in the July 20 chat, hosted by @VUMC_Insights on Twitter.

Mental and physical well-being are interconnected, but stigmas and stereotypes persist when people talk about or try to get mental health treatment, even for common disorders such as depression or anxiety.

The Twitter Spaces chat is the first real-time component of the award-winning DNA podcast series, which explores what is changing in the next generation of medicine, science and our communities. The chat will be edited and released as a mini-episode in August to jumpstart a month-long exploration into mental health with four podcast episodes in September.

To listen to the conversation, log onto Twitter using the mobile app on July 20 at 10:30 a.m., follow @vumc_insights, and then join the Spaces conversation at the top of the app.
