Adam Brown, “Mental Health and Forced Migration” (2/4)
Prior to the lecture, at 1:00pm in the Jade Parlor, Brown will present his summer study opportunity in Switzerland that is newly available to Vassar students through the Mellon-funded Consortium on Forced Migration. Students participating in the summer semester will develop skills in collecting and analyzing quantitative data related to mental health issues, receive training, and participate in interviewing refugees. The findings will be used to work with members of the refugee community to inform public health programs and treatments. Dr. Brown will be available afterward for an informal Q&A. Lunch will be provided.
Sponsored by the Consortium on Forced Migration, Displacement, and Education funded by the the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. International Studies, and the Department of Psychology.
