Mental Health Network Meeting and Speaker - Mental Health and Culture


The Mental Health Network is excited to share some quick updates from the workgroups and host Dr. Jessica Dere, Assistant Professor from the Department of Psychology, as our guest speaker presenting her talk on “Taking A Culturally-Informed Approach to Mental Health: Challenges and Rewards”.


  • Drawing on illustrative examples and empirical findings, Dr. Dere will discuss the fundamental role that cultural factors play in mental health and illness. Taking a cultural approach to mental health is crucial across the areas of teaching, research, and clinical care. Although working to understand individuals in context is full of complexity and challenges, Dr. Dere will argue that it is necessary and ultimately profoundly rewarding.  


Light Refreshments will be provided.  Please RSVP on Intranet.  Please feel free to share with your networks.  All are welcome.
