Daniel Amen, MD, believes we are on the cusp of a new revolution in psychiatry. Based on a database of over 210,000 brain SPECT scans he has performed over the last 30 years on patients from 155 countries, he believes that most psychiatric illnesses are not mental-health issues at all, but rather, they are brain-health issues that steal people’s minds. This one idea changes everything. Get your brain right, and your mind will follow. His mission is to end mental illness by creating a revolution in brain health. Dr. Amen is a physician, double board-certified child and adult psychiatrist, award-winning researcher, and 18-time national bestselling author. His online videos about brain and mental health have been viewed over 300 million times. Sharecare named him the web’s #1 most influential expert and advocate on mental health, and the Washington Post called him the most popular psychiatrist in America. He is the founder and CEO of Amen Clinics in Costa Mesa, Walnut Creek, and Encino, CA, Bellevue, WA, Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, Dallas, TX, New York, NY, Hollywood, FL, and Scottsdale, AZ. Dr. Amen is the lead researcher on the world’s largest brain imaging and rehabilitation study on professional football players. His research has not only demonstrated high levels of brain damage in players, but also the possibility of significant recovery for many with the principles that underlie his work. Together with Pastor Rick Warren and Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Amen is also one of the chief architects of “The Daniel Plan” — a program to get the world healthy through religious organizations that has been done in thousands of churches, mosques, and synagogues. Dr. Amen is the author or coauthor of over 80 professional articles, 9 book chapters, and over 40 books, including 18 national bestsellers and 12 New York Times bestsellers, as well as the #1 New York Times bestseller The Daniel Plan and the over 1-million copy bestseller Change Your Brain, Change Your Life, which has been listed as one of the best self-help books of all time, along with The End of Mental Illness; Healing ADD; Change Your Brain; Change Your Body; The Brain Warrior’s Way; Memory Rescue; Feel Better Fast and Make It Last; and Your Brain Is Always Listening. In March 2022, Tyndale published Dr. Amen’s book, You, Happier: The 7 Neuroscience Secrets of Feeling Good Based on Your Brain Type. In March 2023, Tyndale released Dr. Amen’s latest book, Change Your Brain Every Day. His books have been translated into 41 languages.
