Description

Today, more than half of all global humanity lives in urban areas. That figure is projected to grow to more than 60 percent by 2050. Although cities possess conditions that promote good mental health, they also possess conditions - poverty, conflict, and social isolation - that are harmful to mental health. In fact, research demonstrates that city living is linked to increased risk for mental health problems.

Join healthcare professionals, government officials, scholars, and philanthropists in discussions about how to create cities that promote the mental health and well-being of their residents.
