The Social Determinants of Mental Health: From Awareness to Action (Annual ISE Conference)
Save the Date -- June 3-4, 2010
Keynote Speaker: David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D. was the 16th Surgeon General of the United States, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and a member of the World Health Organization Commission on the Social Determinants of Health. Currently, Dr. Satcher is the Director of the Satcher Health Leadership Institute, the Director of the Center of Excellence on Health Disparities, and the Poussaint-Satcher-Crosby Chair in Mental Health at the Morehouse School of Medicine.
Plenary Speaker: Sandro Galea, M.D., M.P.H., Dr.P.H. is Gelman Professor and Chair of Epidemiology at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Dr. Galea's research program seeks to uncover how determinants at multiple levels of influence-including policies, features of the social environment, molecular and genetic factors-jointly produce the health of populations. His research areas include the social and economic determinants of population health, epidemiology of mental health and substance abuse, and the consequences of conflict and mass trauma.
The purpose of the conference is to:
- Increase awareness about how social conditions such as housing quality, land use, food security, employment opportunity, working conditions, the environment, public safety, and public service systems impact mental health and well-being;
- Encourage the development of mental health prevention and intervention strategies that are informed by the social determinants framework;
- Facilitate and support the establishment of multidisciplinary collaborations that can identify and address the multifaceted social conditions that impact mental health; and
- Disseminate new knowledge and practice innovations.
