About this event

Mental illness is defined by biological, psychological, developmental, and social deficits which are the result of disruptions in behaviors, thought processes, and affect (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). The information included in this lecture on mental health has continued to inspire diverse communities, classrooms, and professional organizations ranging from Seattle, WA to Starkville, MS. Through this interactive oral presentation, participants will be met with opportunities to discuss the impacts of mental illness and intersectionality, gain a better understanding of populations which are disproportionately affected by mental illness and related complications, engage in interventions, and explore resources to maintain adequate mental health.
