Madness Radio: Depression And Oppression Alisha Ali


First Aired 1-7-2009

Is depression a result of poverty? How can community development and economic empowerment affect mental health? Psychology professor Alisha Ali discusses the dangers of turning social problems into medical disorders, including bias in diagnosis, limits of "cultural competency" and "anti-stigma" initiatives, and the experiences of immigrant women. http://steinhardt.nyu.edu/faculty_bios/v...

I am continuously amazed at your talent for hosting on the radio show. You sound like a professional. You could do this for a living. Have you considered this for when you are older and more feeble? (smiling)
