Essen Economics of Mental Health Workshop

The 2020 version of the Essen Economics of Mental Health Workshop took place at the 3rd and 4th of August. Although already in its third year, 2020 was the first year in which the workshop was moved from Essen to the cyberspace. Christoph Kronenberg and Ansgar Wübker organized the workshop and the Royal Statistical Society and the Royal Economic Society provided kind support.

21 (junior) researchers presented and discussed 12 papers. Martin Knapp from London School of Economics and Political Science and Ezra Golberstein from University of Minnesota provided the keynote presentations that framed the workshop. An exciting alternative to the rest of the workshop was the panel discussion that completed the first day. Bruce Hollingsworth, editor of Health Economics and Michael Darden, co-editor of the Journal of Human Resources discussed about publishing mental health economic work in peer-reviewed journals. Christoph Kronenberg moderated and stimulated the debate.
