2015 Health Equity Research Snapshot
Focus on Mental Health Research
Health and health care inequities affect various populations across a wide range of diseases and health outcomes, including mental health and psychiatric illnesses. Various influences including genetic, familial, cultural and environmental factors contribute to group differences in the prevalence of mental illness and the outcomes of treatment.
The 2015 health equity research snapshot spotlights seven new federally funded research projects underway at AAMC-member institutions. We solicited these videos from researchers and their teams to demonstrate the diverse research efforts that aim to understand and eliminate mental health inequities.
