Regain Control Of Your Life

Regain Control Of Your Life

Mind & Body

Movement is Medicine! Physical activity can improve mental health. Going for a run, developing a yoga practice, or even walking to the mailbox can help. Start where you can.

Wellness Advocacy

Everyone is thinking about mental health, so let's begin talking about it. Together, we can reduce mental health stigma, one conversation at a time.

Hope & Contentment

Millions are living with discontentment. Hope can guide you toward contentment. The journey starts in the mind.

Gregory Scott Brown, M.D., focuses on how we can live better lives by paying closer attention to our mind. He believes that true mental health means moving our body, finding a higher purpose, learning to live with contentment, and having meaningful conversations with the people around us. Dr. Brown challenges people to become inspired, and to find hope in the process of learning about themselves and those around them.

The Stigma of Depression Affects Even Psychiatrists

Featured Commentary: Men's Health

I’m a psychiatrist, husband, man of color, and proud wellness advocate. Every day, I see patients and tell them: Talk, speak up. But a decade ago, suffering from depression, I didn’t say a word. Men are raised to be strong. Not to show emotion. Not to cry. For a man of color, these expectations are amplified. And they’re killing us. Suicide is now the second-leading cause of death for men in their mid-20s to mid-30s, third--leading for men in their mid-30s to mid-40s.

Dr. Brown Talks to CNN's Don Lemon About Managing the Stress of the News Cycle

Featured Commentary: Men's Health

IN MY PSYCHIATRY PRACTICE, my patients keep telling me, Doc, the news is stressing me out. Which made me wonder: How is someone who works amid the 24-hour news cycle managing the stress? So I turned to Don Lemon—one of a few Black prime-time cable news anchors, who’s not only reporting on racial-justice protests and COVID-19’s toll on communities of color but processing it all in real time and taking severe backlash for his commentary. We talked over Zoom one afternoon in between my seeing patients. Here’s how he’s dealing with everything coming at him, especially as the nation heads into the election.
