A three-part lecture series, "Dispelling Myths, Moving Forward: Science and Mental Health" focused on the past, present, and future of mental health care during the Spring 2016 Mini Medical School at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.
The event's curriculum included topics such as mental illness treatment before 1980, evolution of the psychiatric diagnosis, and future treatments for cognitive disorders. A panel discussion on the third night featured professionals from the community talking about innovative intervention programs for the mentally ill in the Roanoke area.
The series was held in conjunction with Mental Health America of Roanoke Valley.
