MENTAL HEALTH ACTION SUMMIT
October 10 | University of Cincinnati, Kowalewski Hall
University of Cincinnati and key community partners are working together to help improve the state of mental health in our region by hosting the Mental Health Action Summit, an all-day conference focused on research, education and creative solutions.
Over 10 million people in the U.S. have a serious mental health condition.
The summit's two primary goals are:
- identifying areas where community needs are unmet, or gaps exist in treatment or services;
- developing strategies and ideas for programs and partnerships to address those unmet needs.
Following the summit, there will be an opportunity to apply for funding to increase the impact of these important mental health research initiatives and collaborations.
More than 50% of those with serious mental health conditions go untreated.
Changing Outcomes, Saving Lives
Being the only academic healthcare university in the region is a big responsibility. Bigger still is the opportunity for us to engage the entire campus community in solving urban issues related to health and well-being, prevention, quality care, researching the next cure, equality in access and talent development.
Urban Health is a pathway in President Neville Pinto's Next Lives Here strategic direction.
