Ongoing challenges and potential solutions will be examined in light of health care system and financing changes under state and national reform. The research will quantify the problem, costs and consequences. The forum will explore potential options and action steps to reduce disparities and move towards a more equitable distribution of critical resources.

Mental health suffers from a major image problem. One in every four people experiences mental health issues — yet more than 40 percent of countries worldwide have no mental health policy. Across the board it seems like we have no idea how to talk about it respectfully and responsibly. Stigma and discrimination are the two biggest obstacles to a productive public dialogue about mental health; indeed, the problem seems to be largely one of communication. So we asked seven mental health experts: How should we talk about mental health? How can informed and sensitive people do it right – and how can the media do it responsibly?
