Welcome to our Columbia Global Mental Health Programs' undergraduate summer interns, who will be working on a variety of qualitative and quantitative global mental health research projects with us for the summer!
I was a young girl at the time of the 1969 Stonewall riots. Those were days when virtually no one talked about homosexuality and the AIDS Epidemic was still in the future. Fifty years on, an estimated 4.5 million people will be in New York City for International Pride this weekend, we have effective treatment for HIV, and same sex marriage is legal in the United States and in thirty other countries around the world.
When Serious Mental Illness Meets a Failing Mental Health System
Sandra Luckow is a filmmaker and consummate storyteller. She is also completing her tenure as an Artist in Residence in our Mental Health Arts and Advocacy Program funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. Her film, That Way Madness Lies…, tells the heart wrenching story of the Luckow family’s odyssey through a broken mental health system in their attempt to secure help for Sandra’s brother, Duanne, as he descends into madness.
