Video lecture on global mental health

University of Chicago) hosted a talk by Laurence Kirmayer of McGill University.  I’m pleased to present the full video of the lecture here.  The talk, titled “Revisioning Psychiatry: Cultural Phenomenology, Critical Neuroscience, and Global Mental Health,” is a broad and synthetic overview of Dr. Kirmayer’s thinking on psychiatry and mental health in the 21st century.  It builds on conversations we have been tracking closely on this site for several years, including the 2010 FPR-UCLA conference on Cultural and Biological Contexts of Psychiatric Disorder; the recent Advanced Study Institute at McGill on Global Mental Health; the FPR’s even more recentconference on Culture, Mind and Brain; as well as several years of research and writing under the rubric of Critical Neuroscience.
