Molly Lasater is an Associate in the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH). She received her MPH at JHSPH, and her PhD from JHSPH’s Department of International Health with a focus in social and behavioral interventions. She is a former NIMH Ruth L. Kirschstein Predoctoral Individual National Research Service fellow and former NIMH-T32 global mental health postdoctoral research fellow. A major focus of my research has been the design, implementation and evaluation of mental health and psychosocial support interventions among populations living in contexts of adversity, globally. Currently, my primary research interest is in using mixed-methods to understand the multifaceted relationship between common mental disorders, violent conflict, and climate change to inform the development of effective strategies to promote the mental health and psychosocial well-being of women and children living in situations of complex adversity in low- and middle-income country contexts.
