Times Praises Verdeli's Work in Global Mental Health

Prompted by the ebola crisis, Tina Rosenberg of The New York Times writes: "Depression is the most important thief of productive life for women around the world, and the second-most important for men. We sometimes imagine it is a first-world problem, but depression is just as widespread, if not more so, in poor countries, where there is a good deal more to be depressed about. And it is more debilitating, as a vast majority of sufferers have no safety net." Rosenberg praises work by TC psychologist Lena Verdeli in adapting a method called Interpersonal Therapy for use by lay people in regions afflicted by war, disaster and epidemic.
