Why Shouldn’t This Bother Us?
Mental Illness and the Global Burden of Disease
Dr. Walker Karraa had the opportunity to interview Dr. Anne Becker (Harvard University) about a critical but often under-examined issue affecting global health – the burden of mental illness. They discussed:
- The economic and health consequences of leaving the global burden of mental illness unaddressed,
- The ethical responsibility of more developed countries to address mental illness in poorer nations, and
- How to amplify the message of the importance of investing in global health.
