Increasing bodies of research evidence have revealed associations between disparities in mental health and certain social factors to which these disparities may be attributed. Specifically, being a member of certain minority groups increases one's odds of mood disorders, other mental health problems, and physical health risks (e.g., suboptimal health screenings, HIV risk, poor medication adherence). Evidence-based research has revealed the salience of socially determined predictors of poor mental health among minority groups, primarily stigma and discrimination based on group membership.

As well as presenting evidence of associations of socially-determined mental health disparities, this talk will highlight several intervention models that have been developed and tested in order to address these health inequalities.

Dr. Corina Lelutiu-Weinberger is a research scientist at Hunter College, City University of New York. Her lecture is free and open to the public.
