International Speaker Making an Impact in Today's World of Mental Health

Mental health knows no bounds. As such, Joyce Marter’s scope of work, likewise, knows no borders. In fact, her work has reached an international audience of over 1 billion people across the globe.

According to the World Health Organization, only 1 percent of the global health workforce works in mental health and 45 percent of the world’s population live in a country that has less than one psychiatrist per 100,000 people. These are startling numbers as, in the U.S. alone, one in five people has a mental illness.

Joyce’s mission is to create awareness around and assistance with anxiety, depression and addiction. As an internationally renowned mental health and behavior healthcare speaker, thought leader, Clinical Case Consultant at Northwestern University, award-winning therapist, acclaimed business professional and leader, Joyce works with people to help them lead happier and more fulfilled lives free from the chains of depression and anxiety.

Her expertise is focused on:

  • Mental Health in the Workplace
  • Mental Health Awareness
  • Dual Diagnosis: Mental Illness and Addiction Assessment and Treatment
  • Conscious Leadership
  • Entrepreneurism in Behavioral Healthcare
