Mental Health
General 
the largest initiative to date that will make the greatest impact on the global stigma surrounding Mental Health
Caring for our mental health is necessary. It's empowering. But due to societal stigmas surrounding mental health and a lack of accessible resources about it for all communities, not everyone is able to care for their mental health. We're here to change that.
Our mission is to provide a collaborative environment for students to learn about topics in social medicine, as well as highlight important news and women in medicine. MedSoc Talk is here to encourage future leaders to be educated about the social and economic disparities in medicine in order to enact necessary positive change within the field.
