The Conscious Mental Health Podcast is a series of diverse educational resources for mental health professionals and savvy clients sponsored by the Academy of Integrative Mental Health. The Academy expands knowledge to professionals in the mental health community and beyond, using a conscious, experiential, and evidence-based format. Our mission is to deliver comprehensive health and wellness to all, by empowering personal and professional growth and confidence. We believe continuing education is an essential aspect of mental health care that is ever-evolving and changing, just like the communities we serve. The CMH Podcast is part of our efforts to increase access to modern, experiential knowledge across all stages of a clinician's career.
We share engaging conversations with skilled therapists, multi-disciplinary experts, and advocates committed to thinking outside the box using an integrative approach. Our episodes are similar to our training style in that you receive research-informed content and guided practices, news updates, and other segments to support you in your personal and clinical practice.
Land and Labor Acknowledgement
Our main operations occur in current day Louisville, KY in what is known as the Ohio River Valley. This river is born from the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers in current day Pittsburgh and flows westward into the Mississippi River, which flows to the Gulf of Mexico. The name "Ohio" comes from the Seneca language word, Ohi:yo' (oh-hee-yoh), lit. "Good River”.
We acknowledge all of the more than human beings; plants, animals, mineral, bacteria, fungi and reptiles and beyond that have been growing and decaying, moving and planted for millions of years here. The first people of this land have a history that spans 11,000 years that we know of and many groups of people have lived, hunted and stewarded this land including:
Osage (pronunciation - oh sage —wah-zah-zhay)
Cherokee (pronunciation - Juh luh gee)
We honor all of the indigenous nations and their land with great gratitude and acknowledge the genocide and continuous displacement of indigenous peoples. We also acknowledge the enslaved Africans whose labor built our nation during the colonial era and beyond. We acknowledge the harm inflicted upon the indigenous communities and people of color across the country, which inspires our ongoing work.
Because most of our courses are online at this time, we also want to acknowledge the structures in which our technology is mediated, including somewhere around 75 million servers half a million miles of undersea cable sit on unceded indigenous land and diverse ecosystems. We also acknowledge the rare minerals that are used and mined for our technology. Specifically, the Democratic Republic of the Congo - whose brutal civil war is financed by the mining and extraction of the three T’s (conflict minerals are tin, tantalum, tungsten).
Please see our Statement of Inclusion on our About Us page to see our commitments and work we are doing to actively dismantle oppressive systems and navigate reconciliation and reparations, specifically in the mental health field.
