  • Description:

    Global mental health is an emerging field and movement. Disagreements have developed among psychiatrists, anthropologists, and international relations experts about whether global mental health represents a new imperial agenda or a hopeful sign about a new level of human decency. This lecture will examine these debates, while pointing to specific examples of this new kind of international intervention and care.
