Madness Radio: Depression And Oppression Alisha Ali

First Aired 1-7-2009

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.
