Minding the Gap: Gender and the Mental Health Crisis
In a world challenged by COVID-19, the climate crisis, and political and economic instability, mental health issues are escalating. Although recognized as a critical component of public health, mental health services and support remain unevenly available.
Harvard Radcliffe Institute’s 2023 gender conference will explore the relationship between gender and mental health from an intersectional perspective, with a focus on youth, underserved communities, and the impact of social justice issues. Physicians, scholars, writers, educators, scientists, artists, and activists will consider the relationship between gender and mental health along multiple axes—including genetics, lived experience, vulnerabilities, disparate impacts, and access to healthcare. Finally, we will discuss ways to increase resilience and focus on prevention.
Harvard Radcliffe Institute gratefully acknowledges the Perrin Moorhead Grayson and Bruns Grayson Dean’s Leadership Fund for Academic Ventures, which is supporting this event.
