Lecture Overview

Mental illness is a complex and, at times, unpredictable health issue. With a public hungry for more information, how do we look behind the numbers and examine the real effects of mental illness on the individual? This eye-opening presentation from mental health clinician, Geoff Ahern, includes a look at mental health stigma, shame, and embarrassment, and what happens when mental health work goes beyond the professional and enters our personal life.
