It's Time for a Mental Health Blue Moonshot!

What is causing our mental health to go awry?

Psychiatry & Society

H. Steven Moffic, MD, discusses why we need a mental health moonshot: (1) increase in mental health disorders and symptoms, (2) pandemic related issues, (3) lagging treatments, (4) inadequate resources, and (5) an escalation of physician burnout.

Dr Moffic is an award-winning psychiatrist who has specialized in the cultural and ethical aspects of psychiatry. A prolific writer and speaker, he received the one-time designation of Hero of Public Psychiatry from the Assembly of the American Psychiatric Association in 2002. He is an advocate for mental health issues related to climate instability, burnout, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism for a better world. He serves on the Editorial Board of Psychiatric Times™.
