MFP Times | 6e 2023

The long-term, interrelated problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic require critical thinking, empathy, and changes in various systems. Therefore, in the sixth edition of The MFP Times, the Foundation for the Advancement of Human System's (formerly AAMFT Foundation) Minority Fellow Program focused on Systemic Solutions, introducing Fellows to clinical interventions, research, policies, and leadership skills that make systemic change, leading to decreases in substance use and mental illness for marginalized populations.
