This session considers the influence of social environment and social experience on mental distress and disorder, focusing especially on differences in mental health across social groups, and explanations of these differences in terms of the exposure to different types of macro or micro level stressors and access to social and personal coping resources. The emphasis is on recent trends in mental health research, while addressing traditional concerns as well.
