Event Title: Global Psych Dinner: Steve and Liz Alderman, "The Ups and Downs of Delivering Mental Health Support Services in Africa: One NGO's 10-year Experience"

Location: MGH Bulfinch 225 (Trustees Room)

Description: Steve and Liz Alderman founded the Peter C. Alderman Foundation (PCAF) in 2003 as a living memorial for Peter Alderman, a 25-year old who was killed in the attacks at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. In the past ten years, PCAF has grown to become a recognized leader in providing evidence-based mental health and psychosocial services that restore function in survivors and communities impacted by trauma. It is the only United States-based global non-governmental organization focused exclusively on providing clinic and community-based mental health care and capacity building in post-conflict countries. PCAF established the African Journal of Traumatic Stress in 2010, and facilitates the annual Pan- African Conference on Psychotrauma, which has been held in Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania.
