We are pleased to host the second Essen Economics of Mental Health Workshop on the 24 & 25 of June 2019.

The workshop is themed: “Mental Health over the Life-Course”.

This workshop aims to gather (junior) researchers with an interest in applying the tools of economics to problems surrounding mental health. Papers considering a life-course aspect of mental health are preferred. This includes, but is not limited to, mental health economics studies looking at informal care, loneliness, social exclusion, access to health care, insurance coverage, declines in physical health, age of onset, dementia, suicide, etc. Empirical analyses in this field are especially encouraged for submission.

Christopher J. Ruhm (University of Virginia) and Fabrizio Mazzonna (Universitá della Svizzera Italiana) will deliver the keynotes for this workshop.
