You have expertise and opinions about mental health matters, and the public needs to hear from you. Getting media exposure can provide social proof, establish you as the go-to on specific issues, and increase your credibility with your target audience.

We are very fortunate to secure this training with two media experts who will teach us how to get the media coverage we desire. Dr. Jeff Gardere is known as America’s psychologist. You’ve probably seen him on MSNBC, The Today Show, and reality tv shows. Margaret Cronan is a media and marketing executive. Together they will teach us and answer questions about how to be seen on television and print.

Here are the learning objectives.

  1. How to seek, find and pursue opportunities in the media.
  2. How to craft the right message to the media and general audience.
  3. The do’s and don’ts for media appearances



Dr. Jeff Gardere is a board-certified clinical psychologist, medical school professor, and ordained interfaith minister. He has authored several books and has extensive media experience. Dr. Jeff has been a contributor for multiple national broadcast outlets including The Today Show on NBC, MSNBC, FOX News, and CNN. He also hosted VH1’s Dad Camp.

Margaret Cronan is a media and marketing executive, leadership and talent coach, and entrepreneur. She has led television newsrooms in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and West Palm Beach and has produced news content in New York and Los Angeles. She presently runs Happy Charlie Media, a content-creation company, as well as Mettle Man, a family athleisure business.
