Ethics Grand Rounds - Medicalization and Criminalization of Mental Health
Columbia University's Division of Ethics invites you to the third session in our Ethics Grand Rounds 2022/23 series. This virtual session is entitled: "Medicalization and Criminalization of Mental Health". Featuring speakers Leah Pope, PhD, Kimberly Sue, MD, PhD and Enid Fay Owens, moderated by Division of Ethics Chief, Sandra Soo-Jin Lee, PhD.

Abstract: Individuals struggling with a mental health diagnosis are often picked up by law enforcement and taken – as if by coin toss – either to jail or to a hospital. Recent policies in the United States have played a hand in deepening mental health stigma and widening the gap between care that is needed and imposed interventions. This session will explore the way mental illness has routinely been both medicalized and criminalized, the impact of incarceration on mental health at large, and what work is being done to promote harm reduction in New York City and beyond.

Live captioning services will be provided by a certified Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) captioner and available via closed captioning. Closed captions will also be available for the recording.
