Carmine Di Maro
Director at the One Mind Accelerator
Who or what is your inspiration?
I'm inspired by people who commit their lives to service, to the good of others even when it isn't personally beneficial to them or requires great sacrifice.
One thing you would like to see changed in mental or behavioral health care?
I would like to see more emphasis put on measurement, analysis and outcomes. Mental healthcare is the only area of medicine that is based mostly on subjective judgments and self-reporting. A close second is the separation of addiction / SUD treatment from overall mental health, which leads to incomplete treatment for the large percentage of patients suffering from addiction and co-occurring mental illness.
What is your superpower?
My superpower is the ability to get vulnerable and ask for help. My personal journey with mental health has been full of ups and downs, but I have always gotten back up and sought out support from those around me to get through hard times.
