2015 Live Ideas: S K Y - Force and Wisdom in America Today | Marjorie Morrison on Proactive Military Mental Health
New York Live Arts
Marjorie Morrison discusses proactive military mental health with Jason Hansman, Joe Mauricio and Mateo Romero.
For the first time in American history, 90% of wounded service members survive their injuries. A greater percentage of men and women are now coming home with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and severe Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). A new approach to mental health needs to be adopted in the military to adequately address these unique needs. The shift to move services from reactive to proactive and mandate education on alternative techniques such as mindfulness is desperately needed. In this panel, Morrison, Mauricio and Romero will discuss where we are, where we were and where we need to be.
The 2015 Live Ideas festival combines the arts and social issues in synergistic ways, activating the New York City community to creatively question the direction of modern culture. Presenting no fewer than 25 events via an array of music, dance, newly commissioned poetry, film, discussion and a late-night lounge, S K Y – Force and Wisdom in America Today features such artists as Laurie Anderson, Deborah Hay, Hal Willner, Vito Acconci, Pauline Oliveros and IONE, Reverend Billy, John Zorn, Anne Carson and Master Ren as well as the work of renowned artists including Lou Reed, Julian Schnabel, John Cage and Arvo Pärt.
