The ARCUS Arctic Research Seminar Series brings leading Arctic researchers to Washington, D.C. to share the latest findings and what they mean for decision-making. These seminars will be of interest to federal agency officials, congressional staff, non-governmental organizations, associations, and the public.

This seminar titled Promoting Research on Mental Health, Resilience, and Wellbeing in the Arctic will provide an overview of research and other activities supported by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that aim to improve the mental health and wellbeing of Arctic residents. The event features Roberto Delgado and Andrea Horvath Marques from the National Institute of Mental Health/ National Institutes of Heatlh.

Roberto Delgado works in the Office for Research on Disparities and Global Mental Health (ORDGMH) and the Office of Rural Mental Health Research (ORMHR) at the NIMH/NIH, supporting the Institute's efforts to reduce mental health disparities both within and outside of the United States.

Andrea Horvath Marques serves as Chief of the Mental Health Disparity Program at the NIMH/ORDGMH. Andrea is trained as a psychiatrist, neuroscientist, and public mental health researcher. An experienced psychiatrist and public mental health research professional, Andrea manages a grant portfolio focused on suicide prevention in Native American and Native Alaskan communities and coordinates NIMH efforts related to Mental Health Disparities research and co-leads the NIMH's Mental Health Equity Workgroup.

This event is a brown-bag lunch that will be held in the ARCUS D.C. office (1201 New York Avenue, NW Washington D.C. Fourth Floor). Cookies and beverages will be provided.
