Both Audacy and Genomind aim to end the stigma surrounding mental health. Through their Mental Health Map™, Genomind provides the first and only consumer DNA test to offer a concise, easy-to-navigate blueprint of your genetic profile. The test provides results showing how your genetic profile can influence stress and anxiety, mood, focus and memory, habits and substance use, sleep, social behavior, and eating behavior.
Audacy’s I’m Listening initiative aims to end the stigma of talking about mental health. Through the partnership with Genomind, listeners will hear “I’m Listening Daily Capsules,” a daily 60-second public service announcement supporting the I’m Listening initiative. Genomind will also serve as the presenting sponsor for the annual I’m Listening broadcast where artists, athletes, and medical professionals gather to remind listeners it’s okay to not be okay, raise awareness and end the stigma of talking about mental health.
“Mental health awareness is a major area of focus for us and a crucial pillar of our companywide social impact platform, and we’re excited to further activate our commitment through this partnership with Genomind,” Sarah Harris, Vice President, Social Impact, Audacy said in a statement.
