Social Change and Mental Health

Monday, 16 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
RC49 Mental Health and Illness (host committee)

Language: English

Societies across the globe currently experience dramatic social change. Mass migration, adaptation to climate change, globalization of trade and politics, demographic shifts, digitalization and changing labour markets are the most prominent issues among many others. Contributions to this session may highlight  effects on prevalence and incidence of mental health in general as well as on specific mental disorders. Contributions on related phenomena such as suicide or drug consumption are also welcome. Another suggestion may be the question of access to mental health care in times of austerity politics and policy initiatives that force savings in the health care system.
