Active Citizen Series - Deliberative Dialogue: Mental Health in America

Tuesday, September 26th, 2023 from 4:30pm to 5:45pm (ET)

About

Many individuals share a sense that something is wrong with how we address mental health and mental illness. More and more people are taking medications for depression, hyperactivity, and other disorders. Meanwhile, many mental illnesses are going undetected and untreated. According to some, recent violent incidents reflect the need to increase security and increase our ability to detect mental illness. One in five Americans will have mental health problems in any given year. How should we move forward as a nation?

A Deliberative Dialogue is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to gather and exchange diverse views and experiences to seek a shared understanding of a challenge facing our society and to search for common ground for action.
