TEDXTalk in Dresden

The brain is what makes you YOU!

1.5 kg of tissue, 10 billion neurons, 100’s of trillions of connections – that is the organ in your body that makes you YOU: the brain. Just as any other organ, it is susceptible to disease; however, patients with mental illness are stigmatized. This talk not only introduces a concept of how we can destigmatize patients with psychiatric conditions by educating society about the brain but also illustrates of how this approach is put into practice in different countries around the world. Rick Wolthusen is a final year medical student at Technical University Dresden. He traveled to sub-Saharan Africa for clinical internships several times and founded the German NGO On The Move e.V. in 2013. The NGO focuses on volunteer programs, fundraising campaigns for medical institutions and schools, and so-called Brain Awareness activities in African countries and Germany. Brain Awareness aims to decrease the stigma of mental illness by educating the society about the brain, in keeping it with the motto “The brain is what makes you YOU”.
