Mental Health in a Time of Crisis

Wednesday, October 21, 2020
Thank you for an interactive conversation on the importance of mental health, especially in times of crisis like the current pandemic when already scarce resources are often pulled for other priorities. The conversation paid particular attention to the need for mental health services to be highly contextualized and responsive to the needs and perspectives of people with lived experience.
The panel brought together speakers with diverse backgrounds and experiences from a wide variety of settings as advocates, implementers, researchers, practitioners, and lived experience navigating mental health systems.
