About Paula

Paula Jesty is President and Chief Executive Officer of M.I. understanding. A former television producer, with a degree in communication, she created M.I. understanding in order to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of early intervention when it comes to children’s mental health.

Dedicated to creating a community of support, her work strives to pull families out of isolation, start a conversation and create a platform that sees everyone in a child’s life (school, medical, community and family) working together to support them. To this end, she has produced and distributed videos and other resources that provide families with actionable insight, pro-active ‘health in the moment’ tools they can consume quickly to help their child.
