We turn to Dr. Kathryn Gordon helps us turn down the noise in the news cycle on mental health and helps us better understand questions like did the Covid-19 pandemic really bring about a huge mental health crisis, does political engagement and cultural debate hurt or help your mental health. She also delves into popular culture to give us some good examples of how mental health is dealt with in movies and TV shows, and some of them you might find surprising.
