Many Americans, on and off of college campuses, are living with mental health challenges, particularly depression and anxiety. While modern psychiatry has focused on finding technical solutions to these challenges, focused on symptom reduction, other researchers point to the way that depression and anxiety are often rooted in social fragmentation and disconnection. In this talk, we will consider a whole-person, faith-inspired approach to mental health that understands humans not as machines to be fixed, but as wayfarers on a journey, and will consider what it would mean to foster belonging, vocation, and wisdom in an age of disconnection.

Join us for a compelling conversation with Dr. Warren Kinghorn, MTS'02, TH.D'11, as he discusses the ways Duke Divinity School and Duke Medical Center engage embodied wisdom to strengthen feelings of belonging and purpose.

Registration fee per person includes appetizers, wine, and other beverages.

  • General admission - $20
