Effective Altruism at Northeastern is hosting a Global Mental Health event, at 10am (EST) on the 17th of November 2020. Students who are interested in public health, mental health, global health, philanthropy, and philosophy (of wellbeing/welfare especially) will be particularly well-suited to attend, although the event is open to all, so please do share it with students and other relevant parties.
Michael Plant and Caitlin Walker are part of the Happier Lives Institute. The Happier Lives Institute aims to answer the following question: how can we most effectively use our resources to help people become happier? To address this, they combine data from people’s self-reported happiness and life satisfaction with insights from multiple academic disciplines.
