Despite great progress toward understanding the causes and treatments for mental illnesses, our nation’s health care system continues to fail people living with these conditions.  Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter has been a driving force in the field of mental health throughout her public service career.   She will highlight populations keenly shortchanged: children, the elderly, the poor, those affected by trauma, and those trapped in the criminal justice system, among others. Through deeply personal reflections based on her years of advocacy, Carter will illustrate why these groups are suffering and reveals the solutions we can implement now to remedy the situation.
