Global Mental Health: Addressing the Global Burden of Depression

April 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Depression is one of the world’s leading causes of disability, but according to the World Health Organisation, only a small proportion of those affected have access to treatment, while stigma and misunderstanding are problems everywhere. In this panel discussion, hear how the experience of depression is a global phenomenon – and what we can learn, worldwide, about how to treat it.
