The Future of Mental Health

Location: UCB 100

Recent studies show that mental illness is highly common in our society—about 25% of people in the U.S. suffer from a mental illness. This presentation will explain:
• what mental illness is and how common it is
• how it affects individuals, families, and society
• the current state of mental healthcare treatment options (psychotherapy, medications, life style modifications, other biological interventions, and new technologies and advances on the horizon); and
• the future of mental healthcare in the context of advances in science and medicine, as well as relevant policy implications.
