About the event

Webinar Title: The Role of Social Determinants of Mental Health in Evaluation and Diagnosis

Presenter: Alena Aguilar, LMSW

Virtual Location: Zoom Events

Registration: Free

The relationship between social justice and mental health is multi-faceted, complex and has significant implications – not only for individuals, but also for society. To understand social justice as it relates to mental health, one must consider the framework of the social determinants of mental health – the conditions into which we are born, grow, live, work and age – as they are most responsible for the health and mental health inequities that exist in society. Certain segments of our population (especially people with serious mental illness) disproportionately experience striking inequities in health outcomes. Furthermore, people who have serious mental illness have an increased vulnerability to the deep-rooted inequities in major systems such as criminal justice, child welfare and healthcare.

This webinar presentation introduces social work and legal advocates to the concept of social justice and to the role of social injustice in perpetuating mental health inequities.
