Johann Hari

Lost Connections "Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression—and the Unexpected Solutions"

Drawing on international research and diverse studies, Johann Hari’s latest book Lost Connections proposes a simple but radical premise: as depression and anxiety rates rise around the world, maybe we need to look at the causes of mental illness beyond our own brains. His previous book, Chasing the Scream, similarly penetrated our beliefs surrounding addiction. As he persuasively shows audiences, the cure is in solving systemic problems of isolation and poverty—and working towards making people feel they belong, are valued, skilled, and with a secure future. Hari’s is a campaign of human connection.

Lesley Brooks, M.D.

Community Mental Health: 'The Future of the Movement’

Dr. Brooks is a family medicine physician who recently began work in a Community Mental Health Center overseeing a program expansion and more deeply developing their MAT program for substance abuse services. Dr. Brooks was immediately struck by the different rules, policies, and processes a CMHC must operate under as compared to her experience as a family practice physician working in a physical health care setting. It led her to examine how these differences contribute to stigma as well as create barriers for minority and marginalized populations to engage in behavioral health care. Dr. Brooks offers some recommendations for consideration to improve the behavioral health care system and expand its reach to marginalized and minority populations.
