Conversations at The Carter Center: Atlanta’s Role in the Global Mental Health Revolution
- This event has passed.
Today, more than 450 million people worldwide live with a mental illness, and depression is the world’s leading cause of disability. In countries ravaged by war, disease, or natural disaster, the toll is especially devastating. In the United States, the suicide rate is the highest it’s been in more than 50 years. Learn what The Carter Center and The Center for Victims of Torture are doing to address the mental health crisis. This program is presented in partnership with the Georgia Global Health Alliance.
