A portrait of Jesse Zook Mann

Jesse Zook Mann is an Emmy Award-winning DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER, mental health advocate and a therapist in training.

There are no magic bullets when it comes to managing mental health conditions, but there are so many treatment options that patients deserve to know about. I know from personal experience that this path is not easy, but I believe that recovery is possible.

Jesse Zook Mann is a documentary filmmaker whose work has been featured on NBC, VICE, MTV, Discovery, and Science. Over the past two decades, he has built a name for himself as a fearless director willing to explore his subjects’ stories with curiosity and empathy.

In 2019 Mann founded Mental Health Media it promote and educate about the diverse landscape of available mental health treatments and the importance of self-care. Mann was inspired to start the project after his own mental health journey. He now uses his media expertise to help others and is a mental health thought leader on social media and on the Hardcore Therapy Podcast.

Jesse is currently enrolled in Antioch University’s Couple and Family Therapy program and expects to graduate in 2025.
