The Global Health Institute Presents:
No Health without Mental Health! Integrating Depression Care with HIV Prevention and Treatment Services.
With Guest Speaker
Jerome T. Galea, PhD, MSW
Assistant Professor, School of Social Work
University of South Florida
The need for mental health services globally is unprecedented, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet most people in both high and low-resource settings in need of mental health services go without, creating a mental health “service gap.” The field of Global Mental Health is dedicated to closing that gap. Today, Dr. Galea will speak about integrated HIV and mental health care in the context of increasing access to evidence-based mental health services for all.
Dr. Galea is an Assistant Professor of Social Work at the University of South Florida, Lecturer at Harvard Medical School, and a Global Mental Health implementation scientist. He has extensive experience in the implementation of low-intensity mental health interventions in Lima, Peru; Chiapas, Mexico; and Tampa, Florida.
In collaboration with Global Health programs, the Global Health Speaker Series presents students, alumni, faculty and guest speakers showcasing the multidisciplinary aspects of global health work and research.
