Upcoming Events

GMH@Harvard Events

GMH@Harvard has two planned events on-campus for the 2018/2019 calendar year.

Tuesday, October 23, 2018: GMH@Harvard Showcase & Film Screening

The GlobalMentalHealth@Harvard Initiative is excited to invite 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 is 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 have a range of participants presenting from non-profit organizations and artists, to research labs across Harvard schools. Join us for a night of networking and celebrating each other's work! Please RSVP here.  

Participating groups include:

Film Screening: 6:00-8:00pm G1, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Following the showcase networking event we will be screening parts of the documentaries and hosting the filmmakers for a panel discussion:

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

  • A two day conference with the goal of generating a discussion about the everyday impact of racism on the lives of people of color and how we as a profession and as professionals will address it. We draw on both “the usual suspects” and cutting-edge thinkers/researchers to generate conversations through presentations, panels and break-out groups involving three major themes: Mental Illness Outside the White Paradigm; Impact of Racism on Mental Health; and Race, Mental Illness and the Justice System. Co-sponsored by the Mental Health Legal Advisors Committee.
