Atlanta’s Role in Mental Health (Jan. 14, 2020)

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.

Moderator:
- Rose Scott, WABE

Panelists:
- Dr. Shekhar Saxena, Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health
- Dr. Janice Cooper, The Carter Center
- Dr. Paul Orieny, Center for Victims of Torture
- James Sale, United for Global Mental Health

The Carter Center is guided by the principles of our Founders, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Founded, in partnership with Emory University, on a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering, the Center seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.
