District VII: Mental Health and Occupational Justice

We need to do! Humans have a biological need for occupation to develop competence, identity, and resilience. Occupational engagement is essential for healthy brain development. But people in marginalized populations, including those who have mental illnesses, spend less time occupationally engaged. We will explore occupation as a social justice issue. We will also look at a small research study that explored this issue in a local behavioral health organization. 1 PDU awarded.
