Welcome to Imagine a World - created to ask the nation's thought leaders about mental and behavioral health. Mental/Behavioral health, especially for Seniors 65+, is a big part of today's healthcare business. What could be changed or created to help individuals live longer, healthier, and happier lives, especially Seniors.  A better life is meaningful because 1 in 4 Americans today have a mental or behavioral health condition. Behavioral Health cases often go undetected, and the onset of chronic conditions only exacerbates seniors' mental health. We should not have to have problems with treatable conditions. Imagine A World will listen and find out what the solutions are. Is the system failing us? Is there a way to imagine different kinds of therapy, so better mental health becomes the start of better physical health? Forefront Telecare created Imagine A World podcast to learn different ideas and opinions on living a longer, healthier, and happier life for Seniors.
