Public Health in Action: Mental health innovations

A new series from the Harvard Chan Studio and Harvard Public Health magazine

For far too many people, mental health care seems out of reach—unaffordable, unavailable, or ineffective. But fresh thinking is changing the conversation. This new series pairs discussions from The Studio with journalism from Harvard Public Health to examine mental health programs across the U.S. that deliver real results.

Series coverage

Series trailer

As the Public Health in Action team began planning this series, we reached out to leading voices in mental health for their insights on how U.S. care is falling short—and where it is succeeding. These short Q&As with a veteran policymaker, a clinician, and a student activist offer important perspectives on the mental health care system.
