Hollywood & Mind, focused on the intersection of mental health and the entertainment industry, will hold its inaugural tentpole event May 11, 2023, at the Beverly Hills campus of founding sponsor United Talent Agency. Initial sponsors also include Hallmark Media and MTV Entertainment Studios. The one-day event will bring together mental wellness experts with executives and talent across music, film, TV, digital, sports and other sectors to foster collaboration and catalyze action to help destigmatize mental health. The event is brainchild of entertainment journalist (and Cynopsis senior contributing editor) Cathy Applefeld Olson. “As we continue to grapple with the growing mental health crisis in this country and around the world, the entertainment industry is in a unique position to amplify conversation, reduce stigma and effect measurable change,” said Applefeld Olson. “Up until now the intersection of entertainment and mental health has been disjointed, with no coalition to gather stakeholders, share learnings, incubate ideas and foster collaborations. Hollywood & Mind is a formal expression of the need and willingness for both mental health professionals and the entertainment industry to come together to provide a powerful platform for discussion.”
