Dear UW alumni and friends,
You’re invited to the second event in the UW School of Social Work’s 2010/2011 Faculty Lecture Series, featuring Assistant Professor Jennifer Stuber’s talk on Transforming the American Conversation about Mental Health.
The public health problem of untreated mental disorders has many causes. Dr. Stuber’s research is focused on the development of educational programs and interventions designed to bring about a cultural sea change in how people understand and communicate about mental health.
Dr. Stuber will discuss the work she has been doing in seven communities in Washington state and the life-long program of research she has taken on.
Before and after the lecture, guests will have the opportunity to view The Willard Suitcases, an art exhibit telling the story of the stigma, shame, secrecy and histories of people with mental illnesses or disabilities after the closing of a large inpatient psychiatric hospital.
The School of Social Work’s 2010/2011 Faculty Lecture Series will host an additional lecture in May of 2011. Information on the May lecture will be available in March.
Space is limited, so sign up today!
This lecture is presented by the UW School of Social Work and the UW Department of Communication.
