The program will consist of two plenary panels on key topics in cultural psychiatry, presented by 17 international and New York-based speakers.  One focus of the program is on cultural aspects of clinical management, based on case discussions. Taking place the day before the much-larger WACP, with nearly 300 speakers, the Pre-Congress Day presents a unique opportunity to share in a more intimate gathering with colleagues working in cultural mental health around the world.

Cost: $50 for physicians from the United States and other High-Income Countries (HIC); $30 for non-MD participants from the United States and other HIC’s; $30 for physicians from World Bank Band B countries; free for trainees and all other categories!
