This conference brings together the world of cultural psychiatry — psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and others in mental health, anthropology, history, and social science colleagues from around the world — to share how best to implement a culture-focused approach in mental health practice. We aim to overcome health and healthcare disparities and promote global mental health equity in access, engagement, and quality of care for diverse populations.
III World Congress, London 2012
This conference focuses on the work of individuals and groups from around the world who are applying cultural psychiatry principles and practices in their daily activities across a broad range of mental health-related responsibilities. In the face of time, knowledge, and financial constraints, we strive to make cultural psychiatry count.
The World Congress convenes clinicians, administrators, researchers, educators, policymakers, consumers, and advocates to share their expertise and experience as well as their challenges and solutions in a frank and productive international exchange.
