GlobalMentalHealth@Harvard Showcase and Film Screenings - Harvard Worldwide Week

On October 23rd 2018, GMH@Harvard hosted a Showcase and Film Screening inviting students, faculty, organizations, programs, and departments to share their work on global mental health in Boston, the US or abroad at our showcase event during Harvard Worldwide Week! Our goal was to encourage new collaborations across the university; introduce students and trainees to the diverse global mental health work at Harvard; and showcase the incredible interdisciplinary work being done throughout our community. We had a range of participants presenting from non-profit organizations and artists, to research labs across Harvard schools.

Participating groups included:

Following the showcase networking event we screened parts of two mental health-focused documentaries and hosted the filmmakers for a panel discussion:

  • "Still We Rise" by Molly Knight Raskin
  • “Sadness in Comedy: Unfounded Stereotype, or Something More?" by John Ball
