Panel Discussion - Escaping the Shadow: Mental Health Across the Lifespan
Five OSU Professors will present on topics related to optimizing mental health. The panel is organized to cover the adult lifespan. Each of the presenters has conducted research in the area they will be speaking about and will integrate results from their studies into the general theme of mental health across the lifespan. The presentations will be relatively brief to leave plenty of time for rich discussion with the audience.
