Mr. Lasso goes to Washington to talk mental health

The cast of Ted Lasso, the hit Apple TV+ show about a fictional British soccer team, came to the White House to meet with President Biden and talk about mental health, a major theme of the show. They also made a brief appearance in the White House press briefing room. MindSite News culture writer Sarah Henry looked at the series and its depiction of mental health issues last year in an award-winning story, On the Couch with TV’s Ted Lasso. The third season just began streaming March 15, so it’s a good time to re-read it.
