Let’s Talk Mental Wellness: Q & A with Andrew J. Gerber, M.D., Ph.D
June 29 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Q & A with Andrew J. Gerber, M.D., Ph.D. June 29, 7:30pm
President and Medical Director, Silver Hill Hospital, New Canaan, Connecticut
Dr. Gerber will speak about the broken state of our mental health system and the importance of developing better social and emotional wellness programs in our schools, workplaces, and communities to improve mental health care.
Dr. Gerber will also discuss the important role of not-for-profit psychiatric hospitals in offering a continuum of care for patients, and adequately addressing the widespread problem of patients and their families ‘falling between the cracks’.
Dr. Gerber’s topic is particularly relevant as mental health systems will need to prepare for the rapidly growing mental illness crisis due to COVID-19.
