Webinar: Leveraging Neuroscience Research to Inform Mental Health Policy – Apr 7

Posted by Temple University Public Policy Lab on March 8, 2022

The precursors, proximal causes, and consequences of mental health problems are complex, and influenced by individual differences in personality, neurophysiology, and responsivity to threats and rewards. This presentation explores this complexity, with a focus on social anxiety and challenges raised by the recent global pandemic. How does current policy succeed or fail to address mental health diversity? What are the economic ramifications of increasing mental health problems in the context of decreasing social safety nets? Most importantly, how can a deeper understanding of the causes and consequences of psychopathology enable us to improve outcomes at a societal level?

Dr. Johanna Jarcho is Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Temple University.

Date and Time: Thursday, April 07, 2022, 12:30 pm to 1:50 pm
