About the Conference

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.

This conference is jointly sponsored by University of Illinois (UIC) College of Medicine at Chicago, the UIC Jane Addams College of Social Work, and the Adler University. It is intended for mental health professionals including psychologists, physicians (particularly in psychiatry and primary care), and the wide range of professionals involved in social determinants of health issues: social workers, nurses, allied health professionals, community-based organizations, academicians, policy-makers, legislators, and philanthropists.
