Jeante Jackson (he/him/his) is a Cognitive Neuroscience Masters student at the CUNY Graduate Center. With six years of clinical experience as a Mental Health Worker at New York Presbyterian, he wishes to bolster the mental health landscape with innovative strategies. The arts, in its many forms, have been a promising vector to yield better mental health outcomes. To that end, his current project in the Master’s program is exploring the cognitive benefits of music therapy specifically in geriatric populations with stroke, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. Additionally in the past he engaged in environmental justice through Helping Hands for Puerto Rico, which responds to infrastructural devastation in the wake of natural disasters. He looks forward to working with programs like Mindscapes that maximize interdisciplinary work to grow the mental health conversation both clinically and socially.
