Social Determinants of Mental Health
Much of medicine is dedicated to physical health. Yet so much of well-being depends upon mental health. Faye Gary has dedicated her career as a psychiatric nurse to the mental health of children with a focus on homeless and runaway youth along with high risk behaviors. Now with a Doctor of Education degree, Faye serves as the Kent W. Clapp Chair Professor of Nursing for Vulnerable and at Risks Persons at Case Western Reserve University. Today she discusses what motivated her to work with the mental health of children, and how factors outside of medicine contribute to mental health.
